Resize partition with GParted

I upgraded the hdd in my FOG server (Ubuntu 11.4) to 500gb but I can't find a simple way to enlarge the partition to take up the empty space. I image its simple enough but I have very little experience with ubuntu/linux so things will require some dumbing down... Thanks, Dave

Take your server off-line for a little while and use Gparted Live CD to do the deed. It can increase the partition without loosing any data.
