Resizing/moving partitions or booting from / filesystem?? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I'm configured for a separate /boot filesystem, and it looks like I made it too small (trying to use mindi and mondo). The reason I configured for a separate /boot filesystem is that my root file system is an ext3 LVM on 3 LARGE drives. I'm under the impression (possibly wrong) that I MUST have a separate boot filesystem in that case... Assuming that I DO need a separate boot filesystem, is there a way to resize / and /boot fairly painlessly, or would I just be better off backup up, repartitioning, and restoring? Thanks, Mike- Mornings: Evolution in action. ...

    Do you have any space elsewhere for a /boot? There's nothing these days
    that requires it be located at the beginning of the disk. If you haven't

    portion, remove it, then proceed as above.
