Increase home folder disk space ubuntu 11.10

Hello all,
I recently discovered ubuntu and I'm loving it. I'm planning to use it as my primary Os. My only problem now is that my home available disk space is less than 10GB and that really keeps me from working on large files. I worked on this for 3 days in vain. I burnt a gparted live CD but don't really know what to do with it(i.e which drive is windows and which one is ubuntu's...). Here what gparted window reads:

Partition File system mount Point Label Size

/dev/sda1 ntfs Recovery 9.00 GiB
/dev/sda2 ntfs System Reserved 100.00 MiB
/dev/sda3 ntfs host 456.67 GiB
unallocated unallocated 1.02 MiB

All I really want is a large home folder in ubuntu, like 200GB at least. Please help. I've heard of ext3, ext4 etc...And also i used wubi for the dual boot install.

Thank you...
