increasing partition size...



Is it possible to increase the size of an ffs partition without having to
newfs it and lose all of the data?

I recently got an IBM 37.5G drive, but my BIOS won't boot with a drive
larger than 33.8GB.  There is a jumper on the drive to downgrade the size
of the disk to 33.8.  Could I just install this now, format one big
partition of 33.8 and then when I get the BIOS update (which doesn't exist
yet) and increase the size of that partition to the full 37.5?


Thanks,
  Nathan
