    Does anyone know how to go about repartitioning one of the Linux partitions? After installing Mandrake 10.1 it looks like i only need a certain amount in one of the partitions and would like to make it available to the one that has the programs and personal files. thanks in advance!

    Parted can do it, as can the partition magics. Be careful though, as it's always dangerous resizing paritions.
