I have problems resizing a primary ext2 partition.

I just upgraded the BIOS on my server to allow it to
see 163 gigs of my hard drive rather than 137 as

I partitioned my hard drive like so:
/dev/hda1 = primary /boot  (100MB)
/dev/hda2 = primary /swap  (1 GB)
/dev/hda3 = primary /      (8 GB)
/dev/hda4 = primary /home  (127 GB)

I want to resize /dev/hda4 to take advantage or the
extra 26 gigs or so but I can't seem to figure out how
to do that.

I booted into Slackware 8.1 using linux single user
mode and unmounted /dev/hda4 then I ran parted printe
/dev/hda4 and got something like partition primary
9084.438-134000.372 .  I then ran resize 2 9084.438
160000.00 and it replies "Cannot resize outside of the
disk!"  I don't understand how to make sure that
parted can see the whole disk so I can resize the
partition.  Can parted resize the partition?

Any help would be appreciated.
