I'd suggest checking carefully before attempting to extend
a mounted ext3 filesystem. Even if the doc's claim it's 
supported you can get into nasty logic races caused by not
wanting to buffer either the journal or cyl groups as they
are written. Theoretically it's all meta-data, but in reality
it takes time to write and failures during that process
can leave buffered cyl group information in core if the 
system croaks.
