I am currently running a slakware version of linux (I can't remember the version, but it's not too outdated) on the uncompressed partition of a dos-formatted drive compressed with Drivespace 3 (I'm using exclusively umsdos partitions). That device is hda1. I bought a new harddrive which is partitioned into several parts, the part I am interested in is hdb6. I can mount that drive and use it without any problems. Now I would like to (if possible) move my entire linux system over to the hdb6 device (1 gig is better than 150MB). I startup linux using a boot disk so that will probably need to be changed also. If I can't make a complete move, then I would like to move just the directories that will grown the most (I take that to be /usr and /home.
