    I have a server with 2 x 1TB drives. When I purchased the server they install centos 6 with software raid 1. With partition table for the mirrored drives looking like such:

    /boot 500MB
    swap 1GB
    / rest of free space

    Without having to reinstall and request a custom a partition table, I'd like to shrink the / partition so I can increase the swap space to ~30GB.

    I have vague knowledge in this area but I wanna be sure.

    Can anyone instruct me how to go about this?

    Thanks beforehand

    Have you tried GParted?

    Isn't that a graphical application?

    Yes, but if it's a local server, you can run it from a live CD.
