Well, I'm downloading Fedora Core 3 Linux now just so I can see what the fuss is about linux. But I've looked high and low for a partition manager that's fairly easy to use(Paragon's partition manager 8 was good, but I need to pay for it)but because I'll only be using it once, I don't really want to fork out the monetary funds required for partition manager. So, are there any decent ones that are easy to use for an intermediate computer user, that have either free trials in which I can use the software and not just see how it works, or something completely free? I've got plenty of time to get all this ready, Fedora core 3 is a 4 disk OS and I'm 50% done on the first and second disks at 25K/s.

If you are looking to resize anything without losing data, then you will have to bite the bullet and buy something.

If you need to resize and are willing to ice your windows installation and reinstall it, you can just use the partition manager that comes with Fedora.

BTW, you only need the first disk. That might save you a little bit of time :)

I've been biting the bullet for the past half hour to PODbots on CS 1.5, now you're telling me I needf to bite yet another one? Yay. Thanks for your help. At least I have a 6 gig partition, I was hoping I could expand it to 15GB though. With this newly shed light any ideas?
