You could try this to get the new device size recognized. If it doesn't work, then reboot will do it for you.
echo "scsi scan-new-devices" > /proc/scsi/scsi
partprobe is used for the situation where you have added partitions.
After you get fdisk to recognize the new size, the next step is to extend the ext3 filesystem:
ext2online /dev/sda6 (or whatever the partition number is)
ext2online works on mounted ext2/ext3 filesystems.

Makes sense. Thanks.

Looks like I'd need to unmount the used partitions to do this. I get
Device or resource busy.
Looking more and more like a reboot is in order! :)
Thanks for the suggestion.
