Hello all!

I need to resize/move some partitions on my harddisk (sda).

What I have is:
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 ext2 1008M 363M 594M 38% /
/dev/sdb1 reiserfs 3.0G 1.4G 1.6G 45% /home
/dev/sda3 ext2 3.8G 3.7G 33M 100% /usr
/dev/sda4 reiserfs 6.0G 212M 5.7G 4% /var
shmfs shm 252M 0 251M 0% /dev/shm

Or better:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1024 1048560 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 1025 1536 524288 82 Linux swap
/dev/sda3 3503 7503 4097024 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 7504 13647 6291456 83 Linux

What I have is 2 contiguous partitions at the beginning (/ and swap), then 1,92 GB Free space, then again /usr, /var and at the end 3,63 GB free space.

The trouble is, I can't get my last partition moved to the end of that disk and I also can't have all the free space merged somehow to the end (that would mean moving to the front the other partitions).

Can anybody help?
