Go to

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2resize/

and download ext2resize-1.1.16.  It has the appropriate kernel patch
for 2.2.18 and 2.4.0, along with the user tools.  Once you have patched,
recompiled, and installed your kernel, you can resize mounted filesystems
either via lvextend + ext2online, or preferrably e2fsadm (from beta5).

Note that there are some limits to online resizing, so read the ext2online
and ext2prepare man pages.

Cheers, Andreas
