Which is what gparted does for you:  Arrange file system and partition
resizing, in the right order.  It's a front end for the various command
that you could issue manually.

I still wonder if anybody's compared speeds to using Windows to defrag
itself first, versus letting gparted take care of the whole thing.
Here, Windows 2000 spent several hours defragging a four gig hard drive
before I had at it with gparted to do the resizing (I didn't find the
note about not needing to defrag until it was too late, despite looking
for comments about defragging beforehand).
