According to http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/products/ydl/ "Updated
partitioning tool enables you to resize existing partitions (ie: OSX),
elliminating in most instances the need to reformat, repartition, and
reinstall OSX." It doesn't mention older MacOS versions (probably
because no one uses them anymore), however GNU Parted says it will
resize HFS/HFS+ partitions. Although, "The start of the partition must
stay fixed" and "Parted can only shrink HFS and HFS+ filesystems". More
info. here: http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/
