	I would expect that chfs would allow you to change a partition
from ext2 to reiserfs, and maybe change the size in the bargain.

	I like resizefs better.  It could also be fsresize.  It depends
on whether you like the mkfs, or fsck traditions better.  Of course, you
could just call it 'resize' like mount calls itself 'mount'.  But,
there's already a X program called 'resize' for resetting your TERMCAP
variable and stty settings after xterm resizes.

Have fun (if at all possible),
