apologies for my ignorance

I am desperate to resize a partition on my new rh7.2 server, and know
almost nothing about partitioning. (familiar with deleting/creating DOS
partitions in FDISK, but that's the extent of it)...

I would REALLY REALLY appreciate it if any wise linux gurus could take me
under your wing...

I want to grow /home (Minor #2) by 4.5 gb.  I was thinking I would resize
/usr (minor #5) to be smaller (change the end from 10260 to 5760) to get
the space to do this.  That's when i rebooted and got nasty errors i
didn't understand, resized it back, and breathed a sigh of relief at my
good luck that fixed it... But now I don't know what to do? Whilst trying
to resize, partent was spitting scary warnings at me like 'failed to
cleanly unmount' or something to that effect.

Thanks for any help you can offer...  Oh yeah, it's a hardware raid
mirror, but since the raid is at the hardware level that should be
invisible to parted right???
