    How to increase Ubuntu /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk

    I am NEW to Linux and have ran out of space on the /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk. Is there a way to increase this space available for Ubuntu files.
    I have duel boot xp/ubuntu. Ubuntu is running along side or ontop of Windows if I understand correctly how I installed it. Both OS's are on the same D: physical drive which is one partition of 76 gigs of which there is 33 gigs free.

    df -h reports

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    13G 13G 131M 99% /
    tmpfs 505M 0 505M 0% /lib/init/rw
    varrun 505M 200K 505M 1% /var/run
    varlock 505M 0 505M 0% /var/lock
    udev 505M 3.0M 502M 1% /dev
    tmpfs 505M 296K 505M 1% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda1 77G 34G 43G 45% /host
    lrm 505M 2.0M 503M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/volatile

    gparted shows
    /boot,/host D Drive
    Size 76.32 GiB
    Used 33.59 GiB
    Free 42.73 GiB
    Flags - boot

    How can I change the size of /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk?
