Caution:  Since you're a Novice, before changing existing partition size with
Gparted or anything else, I suggest you post (here) your present partion sizes 
and content thereof (directories ~ file system).  Arbitrary changes could cause 
you untold grief depending on what you have in the invidivual partions.  

You can boot w/Gparted and look at your partitions (size ~ file type) as long 
as you don't change anything and then APPLY the change.  Once you apply a 
change, that's it, right, wrong, or whatever.
