Resizing those partitions!

I have an FC3 server which I primarily use to store my wife's and my MP3 files
in a directory on /var (/var/shared/music, actually). I thought that 30GB
would be plenty of room to store all of our music, but I was, of course,
wrong. The drive in question is 160GB. I'd like to resize some of the
partitions (I have 50GB assigned to /home, which is never going to fill up).
This is a single-boot system running only FC3, so I don't need to deal with
resizing NTFS or FAT32 partitions. It's a very basic installation, without
very many bells and whistles (I do have GNOME installed on it, though).
# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/hda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
70G 3.0G 63G 5% /
/dev/hda1 99M 13M 82M 13% /boot
none 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda2 49G 360M 46G 1% /home
/dev/hda3 29G 28G 0 100% /var
It looks to me that I can move possibly 35 GB from /dev/hda2 to /dev/hda3. Is
there a way to snag some of that space from / as well? 70GB seems a bit much
for that partition.
Or should I just give in and rebuild the system from scratch?
Any guidance at all would be greatly appreciated.
