Default How to expand Linux ext3 partition

My virtual disk has grown from 10 to 50GB.

Now I have two partitions:
/ dev/sda1 - Linux - 1.8 GB - start 1 - end 1045 - Useb by: /
/ dev/sda2 - Linux swap - 2 GB - start 1045 - end 1305 - Used by: Virtual memory

Is it possible to expand the first partition so that it uses new available space?

If yes, is the right thing to do?

I'm using Debian 6 on a VPS (VMware).

Thanks.

Oh man , I still have opened all the found relevant pages, including the one you suggested. But it does not seem to match my case.

I have to work on a remote VPS on which I can not boot from CD.

But it may be that I did not understand; I'm not very experienced

Thanks.

Do you have a rescue system for your remote VPS? You can use the rescue system instead of the Knoppix Live-CD (if the rescue system provides all necessary commands).
