Resizing partitions was not possible prior to Leopard, now it is, but work carefully. First of all, backup all your essential data. Secondly, in my experience, you cannot do that directly, as increasing size is blocked by the 2nd partitions. As far as I remember from my last similar attempt, the last but one partition could be resized, by deleting the last one, never otherwise.
If you have a succession of 4 partitions, I am afraid you must delete the one close to the first.
Secondly, working with so many partitions is not practical at all, because you can never guess what you need on each of it, and when one becomes full. Why do you have so many partitions? Two make sense, but four? why for?

I agree! That's why I was trying to remove one of the four partitions as it really wasn't necessary.
At the moment, though, I have one for the main volume, the second for OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion (I'm an official invited tester) and the first as an emergency boot volume in case I need to use it to repair the first one.
I suppose I might be able to make disc images of the other partitions, erase them, then recreate and restore from the images.

Talking about pre-release software is not allowed here.
As for your 4 partitions, reconsider the issue, and choose 2, at the most. As you may easily see, this complicates your life, does not simplify it.
