[plug] Disk resize question

Greetings once again,

I am using Fedora 8 and VirtualBox. I had a 6GB disk defined and got to the
point of having only about 107MB of space left. I have defined a second disk
of 7GB and done all the necessary to duplicate the partition definitions and
copied the contents of the partitions across (it had default partitioning
from install time). I can now boot the new disk but it still does not show
the extra space.

[root at localhost ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                           4.7G  4.3G  107M  98% /
/dev/sda1             190M   19M  162M  11% /boot
tmpfs                   252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm
[root at localhost ~]#

I used dd to copy partitions (eg.     dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/dev/sdb2    )
Did I miss something?
