[SLE] partition size ??



Hi
looks like I have a problem with the install, the Hard drive is 160 GB
maxtor.
df shows:-

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda8 19799452 3567816 16231636 19% /
udev 648364 208 648156 1% /dev
/dev/hda6 72474968 4839420 67635548 7% /home
/dev/hdb1 80027764 8394940 71632824 11% /windows/C
/dev/sda1 126720 89460 37260 71% /media/disk

hdb is another HD
so hda8 is about 20 GB
hda6 aprox 72 GB
swap is aprox 1.5 GB

Partition info

hda1 1.3 linux native 0-179
hda2 151.2 extended 180-19928
hda5 10.5 lin native 180-1558 wasted
hda6 69.1 lin native /home 1559-10581
hda7 49.9 lin native 10582-17107 wasted
hda8 18.8 lin native / 17464-19928
hda9 1.5 swap
hda10 1.1 lin native 17311-`17463 wasted

From my new use of Suse coming from another distro, the Suse partitioner
seems to work on free space above and not below the active partition.
Any ideas on reclaiming the 60 GB, or is it better to reinstall as there
is only a few of the apps I have to build installed ?

TIA
Richard
