How do I use GParted ? where do I get it?

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.
ok scarry..

How could I back my the system then could I image it with ghost or something its linux

I am a little nervous and don't want to lose the data but I guess would it work like other partition programs that i've use for on a windows system

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
It was ok enough for me
