problem from resizing Ubuntu.vmx

Working under virtual machine shipped with QSB DVD, virtual hardisk file Ubuntu.vmx quickly was ran out of disk space. Tried to resize the harddisk space by "virtual machin settings -> harddisk -> utilities -> expand" and got 20G more space in guest OS Ubuntu. However, after partition and formating it into ext4, it turns into READ ONLY after mount command.

 

What I did is:

$sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda3 /home/lucid/work

 

Plus if I go to modify /etc/mtab to add one more line similar to "/dev/sda1", it is gone after reboot.

 

Can anybody help on that? I would be ideal if I can re-size root partition directly.
