[CentOS] Verifing: CentOS 5 cannot resize a *live* root filesystem

Just want to verify: CentOS 5's FS utilities are too old to safely resize a
*live* (mounted, etc.) root file system (and the CentOS 5 installer/rescue
system does not include either resize2fs or fsadm utilities).
I am presuming I will need a full-fledged Live CD/DVD to resize the root file
This is for an old 32-bit laptop that presently has CentOS 5.11 on it -- I
want to shrink the root file system (it is LVM) and make a separate /home file
system, then upgrade it to something newer (not C6, since it is not PAE -- I'm
*hoping* Ubuntu's 32-bit installer can deal with a non-PAE 32-bit system).
