Here is my table. I want to take half of the large Win95 drive and give
it to the /dev/hda6.
It looks like hda5,6 & 7 are within hda2. With hda1 my main windows drive,
hda6 & 7 Linux and hda5 my Windows D drive. Do I cut hda5 into two
partitions by resize 5 487 1491 then move 487 to 1491 to 1492 then expand
had6 to 244 1476 - do I delete my swap first (471-486) and make it 1477 to
Is that close? How do I know where the data is on my Windows D drive?
Maybe I'm thinking too much.
Any help would be fantastic.
