I've downloaded ext2resize. Let's see if I've got courage to try it! 
My debian-computer is at home. It isn't networked. The other computer at
my working-place is. 

(With that networked computer I've got big difficulties in installing
debian. I managed to install the base. But It seems that it doesn't really
accept any cd-rom istallation. At some place the whole thing just shuts
down (the power goes off suddently) while installing packages from the
cd-rom drive. (CD drive is just a normal atapi. But I realized that even
the base doesn't start if there is a cd in during booting. The system has
got w95 on the same disk as I'm trying to put debian. The system has got
'an automatic power-off system', when I stop w95. I suspect that it that
has something to do with the problem. I posted earlier some details about
the bios, but no-one has yet told, if they had any similar problems.)
