[ubuntu] Expanding boot partition Gparted

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Ihave ubuntu 11.10 on 1 TB hard drive /home is seperate 890 GB partition swap is 8GB and boot is 9 GB now afrter shrinking /home and moving swap I have unallocated 23 GB between / boot and swap. I need to expand boot to the unallocated space as am getting low disk space warning in boot partition as there is only 796 MB unused in that partition. If I change unallocated to new logical ext 4 partition will I be able to expand the boot into that space? I am doing this prior to upgrading to 12.04 as I now know that I created too small a boot partition, and I want to keep /home seperate partition (Hardware)
