I have used GParted bootable cd many times without data loss, however it's recomended that you make a backup of the system before making any changes to partitions. So if anything goes wrong you can restore(so backup on other media or at least the drive you are not changing)

To get gparted visit http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php. I would reccomend just burning to a cd, but it should also work from other options such as usb (if you have usb boot support in bios). After you burn the cd you just insert disk and reboot. Gparted live boot menu should appear instead of your normal boot menu (like grub) if any.

Clonezilla is the equivalent of Ghost.  It's pretty simple to use:

This is what I did
For my 500 GIG drive
Would this work
I was thinking I could use the 200 gig somewhere or use the 70 Gig for the DRBD or maybe the 100 gig LVM PV
Please advise


5 gig boot
50 gig var
50 gig usr
200 gig /
1 gig /temp

I have an
LVM PV at 100 gig

and

70 gig free partitioned
