Hi experts,

I would like to resize the root partition of my machine, wich has a windows xp as well, I have run the rescue disk and found patrted, but the resize has three variables : the number of partition, the start and end, I didnt understand the start and end part, the documenta. says : the partition will start "start " from the beginning of the disk and ends "end" from the beginning of the disk.

I cant understand exactly what both are, and how to know the start and end that will not affect the other partitions ( ive got no unused space, all us used , just want to resize from another)
