Well, ok lets say I think I screwed up..
I have been working on a Linux System for a Couple of days now so I dont want to Format everything and start over.
But I need to play $HOME in a Partition. I need to do this since I want to make Disk Quotas over Users.
And well I've heard that you need to give $HOME a own Partition for that.
Well, my Question is.
How can I put $HOME in its own Partition when the entire Drive has been Formatted without Losing Data?
How can I use DiskQuotas without having to reformat my entire System.
I know I failed Horrorbly and I screwed up big time. But well how to fix..?

Take a look at the Parted Magic LiveCD for your partitioning needs. It's a small download and quick burn to CD, and is quite easy to use. They have good documentation on their website.oz

Well time for me to Pray and home that that CD works.
Well you can do this with Windows so Linux should be able to do this aswell. (Repartision I mean by that..)
I really hope it works else I can do everything over again!..
...Ill tell you later what happend.
Wish me luck..
Couple of Minutes later:
I tryed the CD and I figured out that I have LVM..
And Ive done some research on the inet..
And I think I am pretty sc(well you know)wd.. =(
I hope someone knows a easy way to work with LVMs??
Is there a way to 'unpack' them?
Well I first want to make a backup of the LVM before I screw things up.. I cant find software for that so is there any better way to do that then mount it in a LiveCD and mount a empty HD and cp all the files??
So, well I hope someone knows a easy way to resize LVMs??
Anywho, Please if you find something.. tell me..
I dont want to restart everything.. =( thats going to be working late..!
Please, tell me if you find something?
Already thanks for looking..
