Thanks, and where can I find a version of ext2resize that will work with
Centos 4.4?  I've searched rpm mirrors and can find anything.  I did some
research and some say that it was taken out with some problems, but may
work again?  Will this one be ok, or is there a better version?

Looks like the latest here is 1.1.19
