    Are you familiar with the Gnome Partition Editor (gparted)? You can install that tool, which will provide a graphical interface for modifying your extra partition's size, position on disk, etc.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gparted

    To make it mount so you can use it when you boot - add it to /etc/fstab.

    If you have questions put the content of /etc/fstab and the output of

    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    (lowercase L at the end)

    also the output of
    Code:
    sudo blkid -c /dev/null
    in your next post
