I've seen several times that I can/should extend the file system, however,
I haven't see any instructions on how to do this.

Or install lvm2, mark the partition that is the rest (or make it a LVM
partition in fdisk). Much more flexibility with practically no cost. Easy
to create, remove and resize "partitions" (logical volumes).

sudo aptitude install lvm2
sudo pvcreate /dev/sdaX
sudo vgcreate mydata /dev/sdaX
sudo lvcreate --name data --size 1G mydata
sudo lvresize --size +1G /dev/mapper/mydata-data
sudo mkfs /dev/mapper/mydata-data
sudo mount /dev/mapper/mydata-data /mnt
sudo vgdisplay; sudo lvdisplay

(Please check manual, this is straight from top of my head)

I don't, I uses IPv6 tunnel. But that isn't an answer to your question. ;-)
