when i installed FC 3 i mounted a partition to /media. anyway, now i am running out of room in my media folder. what i want to do is get rid of one of my other existing partitions and create another partition to mount to /media. how can i go about this? both the destroying of partitions and the creating of partitions. is there a nice graphical partitioning tool i can use to get this done, or do i need to use fdisk?

If you're dual booting with windows you should look at Partition Magic, it handles partitions like a charm. It worked great for me when I had to resize my main partition to install linux and didn't corrupt any data. They're offering a free trial so no money involved :)

frontwards there is a really nice partionion tool in knoppix that you can boot up to and use it's called QT Parted. It's the linux version of partion magic and it's free!
