I'm a Mandrake8.1 (Linux) user.I want to resize
the partition on my disk, with a tool called "Parted".
( see: http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/ )
It is suppose to do : creating, destroying,
resizing, checking and copying partitions.

BUT the tricky thing is if you want to manipulate
the root ("/") partition. -Then I have to make a
"boot disk", and with the "parted" program, I believe?

I can't create this, a "boot disk" etc.
And the documentation on there web-page, on this
matter sucks.

I downloaded all (strange) package they provided,
and tested all possible  ways I believed was described
in that document.. But noo.( Lucky for me, there was
a "parted".rpm on the Mandrake_installs, because I
could not compile it ether ( it asked for the source
for e2fs..bla)).((( I have tested a dos-program
"FIPS", ones, and that splits partition,, so I'm not
stupid. )))

I WANT, a boot-disk with the program "parted".
( Or maybe a other possible way to solve the same

Here is the additional data ( that I saw that others
have included, while searching on Goggle ).

"df" returns:

"Filsystem Storlek Anvnt Tillg Anv% Monterat på
/dev/hda7    2.2G  1.9G  261M  88% /
none          62M     0   61M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda9    1.4G  170M  1.2G  12% /home
/dev/hda1    7.9G  5.9G  2.0G  74% /mnt/win_c
/dev/sda1    4.0G  3.4G  677M  84% /mnt/win_c2
/dev/hda5    3.9G  2.4G  1.5G  60% /mnt/win_d
/dev/hda6     16G   16G  423M  98% /mnt/win_e"


And "fdisk -l /dev/hda" returns:

"Disk /dev/hda: 255 huvuden, 63 sektorer, 4111 cylindrar

(( hum, hope for answer*(s) .. ))
