Newbie question on resizing.

The platform that I'm working on is required to be Red Hat 9. On my machine I need to resize a partition. I unmounted it and issued a p command and a resize. I

Here's what I got:

address@hidden root]# parted /dev/sda

Using /dev/sda

17849/255/63.  Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 8032.499M.

6     139494.120 140003.964  logical   linux-swap
(parted) resize 2 101.975 10000
No Implementation: This ext2 filesystem has a rather strange layout! Parted
can't resize this (yet).

I ran dumpe2fs and came up with these:
has_journal filetype needs_recovery sparse_super

Do I need to shut these off? Or does this version of parted not work on resizing ext2? Also, I tried it with journaling turned off.

Anyone? TIA
