Resizing Partition on Dual Boot Linux W2K workstation
Posted on 2004-09-24
I would like to know if it is possible to resize partitions without purchasing any software?
An evaulation copy of Partition magic reports the following about my harddrive:
Partition Type Size MB Used MB Unused MD Status Pri/Log
Local Disk C: NTFS 2,000.2 1,3796 632.4 Active Primary
/boot(*) Linux Ext3 54.9 13.4 41.5 None Primary
(*) Extended 2,359.1 2,259.1 0.0 None Primary
/(*) Linux Ext3 2,000.2 1,113.8 886.5 None Logical
SWAPSPace Linux Swap 258.8 0.0 258.8 None Logical
Data (e:) Fat32 5,271.3 11.0 5,260.3 None Primary
I have Redhat 7.0 installed on / (2.000.2) logical portion of the harddrive. I would like to upgrade Redhat 7.0 to Fedora Core 1, but I need 400 MB of additional space to complete the install, even if I used the rest of the unused spac (886.5). I would like to take that additional space from the Date(e:) (5,271.3) partition, since I have nothing on that partition right now. The harddrive is a 10G drive and I would like to preserve data on / Linux logical partition. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance
