I think you mean unallocated disk space, not memory.

you can use gparted to 'grow' the current LM partition, but you won't be allowed to modify the partition while it is in use, so: boot up from the live session CD/DVD/USB and run gparted on your /dev/sda drive, right click on the partition and choose 'Grow..' from the pop-up context menu.
need I say more??
