Thanks for the quick replies.
I tried Gparted from a USB stick and Puppy Linux - shows unallocated. So I tried from within PCLinuxOS still shows unallocated.
# fdisk -l

In PCC it shows the main partition and the swap but I dont see an option to resize the main partition.
Did you try starting PCC from a live CD? (You can't resize a mounted partition and you can't unmount a partition that is in use.)
There is also something wrong with your current partitioning: fdisk reports that you have 7475 cylinders on the drive, but also that your swap ends on cylinder 7476, in other words, the last cylinder of swap falls outside the drive.... Removing your swap partition and recreating it before you resize your root partition would be a good idea.
