It worked perfectly. I didn't lost data, all OS are booting well and my Fedora have a lot of space now.


PD: How can I mark the question as solved? Sorry if it's a silly question.

Use the Parted Magic live cd, start the partition manager, and just move or re-size the "/" partitions. You will have to do an "update-grub" after to have the boot-loader load the right partitions. You can use the ubuntu live cd or supergrub disk to do that. Supergrub disk is probably the easiest. Parted Magic; Super Grub2 Disk; If you want, you can also re-size the ubuntu partition within fedora using gparted (sudo yum install gparted). You will still have to update-grub, and depending on the distro it is done differently. If using Fedora grub2, I use the command "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" as root from Fedora Grub2 Wiki. If using Ubuntu's grub2, use "sudo update-grub" command from GRub2 Ubuntu Wiki
