there's a programm: resize2fs
but it requires You to repartition the drive first(extending end of partition).
Otherwise use tool like http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/manual/parted.html#Using-Parted

You just need to boot from the GPartED LiveCD and repartition using the GUI tools on it.

Download the image file from:
