This is a Wubi install that you did from inside Windows?

A wubi install is when you install Ubuntu from the disk while inside of Windows, rather than actually booting from the Live CD.

Assuming this is a wubi install (which it sounds like) then I think you can use LVPM to resize as it's not a real partition but a virtual disk file that resides on your Windows disk.

It would likely be easier to actually backup your /home/ directory and uninstall/reinstall Ubuntu from Add/Remove in Windows but this time give it a larger chunk of the disk. Something above say 10G depending on how much software and data you wish you wish to store in Ubuntu.

Personally I'd recommend a REAL install over a wubi install though.
