OK, thanks for the information, I ignored it for a
couple of months until I now have family mutiny
because of the games factor. Can you lend me a pointer
on how you would handle the following resize scenario?
I want to grow minor 1 from 1309.987 to 4314.362...
/dev/sda: 0.000-8683.252 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor Start End Type FS Flag
1 0.031 1309.987 primary fat32 boot
2 1309.988 8032.500 extended
5 4314.362 4902.648 logical fat16
6 4902.680 4981.091 logical ext3
7 4981.122 8032.500 logical ext3
3 8032.500 8291.359 primary linux-swap
Should the plan here be to move minors 5,6, and 7 to
the beginning of the extended partition, then resize
(shrink) the extended partition, and then move it to
the end of where it currently resides? Any gotchas in
all of this?
Thanks a lot for your help!
