Wrapping components in a FlowLayout

I have this problem now. I have a JPanel in the SOUTH of a border layout. This panel has components in a FlowLayout. When the panel's width is changed and the number of rows in the FlowLayout changes, I want the panel's height to change appropriately so all the rows are displayed.
Anyone know how to do this, or to achieve a similar affect with a different combination of LayoutManagers ? I figure there should be a reasonably easy way.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
