Default Grow a partition

This :
parrot$ df -h
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/sd0a     1005M   1005M  -50.0M   105%    /
/dev/sd0k      797G    429G    328G    57%    /home
/dev/sd0d      3.9G    4.7M    3.7G     0%    /tmp
/dev/sd0f      2.0G    1.0G    882M    54%    /usr
/dev/sd0g     1005M    223M    732M    23%    /usr/X11R6
/dev/sd0h     19.7G    5.1G   13.6G    27%    /usr/local
/dev/sd0j      5.9G    2.0K    5.6G     0%    /usr/obj
/dev/sd0i      2.0G    2.0K    1.9G     0%    /usr/src
/dev/sd0e      7.6G    572M    6.7G     8%    /var
Speaks for it's self. One time , along time ago I did successfully grow my "sd0k" /home partition, it was fairly simple. But I have forgotten exactly how, and also the sd0a / partition is different. I do know there is info in the FAQ, and also 'man fdisk', etc. How ever, I am really not in very good health at all, and would appreciate if any one can give me a straight forward , step by step. Mostly to confirm if what I think is best.
My thoughts are to shrink, or take from sd0k /home, aprox 2g and then grow sd0a / adding 2g to it, ...
Thank you
My best friends are parrots
