The goal is to delete the fat32 partition and extend the ext3 partition

cannot handle this task (I assume these are based on the same lib).
Presumably, parted will fail as well.
Logical volume management (LVM) is designed to help in just this sort of
At partitioning you create a partition/s of type LVM (iirc) (the
physical volumes - or space to use). Then you create logical volumes
within the lvm physical volumes. The Logical Volumes can then span
multiple partitions, and other physical disks.
Is there any tool for linux (preferably opensource) that is capable of
accomplishing of this task?
There is a gui tool to view this:System|Administration|Logical Volume
By default, FC5 seems to choose to make LVM partitions, which would make
it fairly easy. I don't know about converting existing partition/data
into LVM though ?
