A UNIX filesystem is structured in a way so that you cannot just "tuck
in" an extra space to it and expect it to become larger.
You have to make a filesystem structure as a whole of the combined two
partitions. IOW, You need to run newfs, the equivalent term of UNIX
to "high-level format".
"man newfs" and other related topics for more info.
