Hi,

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

I've come to the conclusion that there is no free way to resize partitions easily.  I got a copy of Partition Magic and was able to resize partitions very easily
