Creating Partitions in SuSE 10.1

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Let's say I have a second hard disk at 100GB:
4GB Unallocated
2GB Linux SWAP
49GB Windows/Linux Shared
5GB /TMP
10GB /VAR
30GB /Home

On the first HD there's a WINXP, Linux /, and Linux SWAP partition.

I want to move the 2GB Linux Swap on the second HD to the beginning of the drive and combine the unallocated space to the 49GB so it becomes like this:
2GB Linux SWAP
53GB Windows/Linux Shared
5GB /TMP
10GB /VAR
30GB /Home

Please help...I can't move the partition in Windows using Partition Magic since it has no access to Linux partitions. I want to know how to do it in Suse 10.1 since that's what I'm running. Thanks for replies.

i wouldnt set so many seperate partitions just make / partition as big as you can possible make it and dont have seperate partitions for /tmp /var and /home. Thats just my opinion though. YOu might be able to change the partition using a suse repair. If not im afraid you might have to cahgne it with a clean install
