This certainly SHOULD be possible. However, I just tried it on a spare 8
GB drive that I had and I got the same results. I'd suggest you do two
1) File a bug for parted
2) apt-get install ext2resize
That will let you get your ext2 moved down properly. I have never
actually used ext2resize so I can't say anything about it other than it
sounds good. Good luck. :)
