Resize /home partition

I used the CentOS installer and it made my /home partition huge. It's only an issue because Hadoop won't allow me to use /home for HDFS. I want to resize /home and then make a new partition with the rest of the space for use with HDFS. How do I go about this without reinstalling everything?

    Gparted is probably the most direct. Otherwise live cd and fdisk.

    If your /home is on its own partition it should be pretty easy. Are you using LVM are just standard partitioning? What's your mount points look like?

    We pretty much need to know what alias is asking ..

    Can you show us an output of
    parted -l
    
    or
    fdisk -l
    

    and also
    df -h
    

    ??

    Thanks guys! I actually changed my setup and am going to avoid storing any data on the same drive the OS is on.
