Thanks to the geniuses at Ubuntu, it's actually quite easy. Please Note, that it may destroy data, so backup everything before attempting:

1) Boot from a Live CD / USB

2) Open GParted

3) Select Resize / Move

4) Move Partitions After Your Partition, and Resize The Partition

5) Reboot

Thats it, you're done. If anything is screwed up, just use your backup that I know you made.
