Resizing partitons for triple boot system?
Date: Fri, 10 Sep 2004 09:18:14 -0700
I currently have a dual boot machine (Mandrake Linux and WinXP) on a 120GB
hard disc, using LILO. I want to add a third boot to Yoper Linux. My
partitions currently are:
Primary: 49GB, NTFS, WinXP
Extended: 68GB, Ext3, Linux
Logical: 6GB, Ext3, /
Logical: 512MB, Linux Swap
Logical: 57GB, Ext3 /home
I want to resize the NTFS Primary partition to 40GB and the third Logical
partition to 40GB to give me 26GB of space for Yoper Linux. Is there one
tool that will do that (I believe "parted" will not resize the NTFS part.)??
Secondly, once I have the space on the hard drive how what do I have to
add to my lilo.conf to get it to show Yoper Linux on the Lilo boot menu?
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
