Yes, remember to shrink the filesystem before shrinking the partition
Another option is to simply add a swapfile to increase swap space.
How does one shrink the filesystem ??
You don't. Not unless you enjoy doings the hard and unreliable way.
Just use GpartEd (or is it PartEd ?), it exists on many live CD's, and
there is a dedicated GpartEd CD, too. It'll move/resize/create partitions
Oh, don't forget to backup, anyway.
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying.
The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
