    how to resize partitions in linux


    Hi,
    I have FC3 installed on an 80 GB hdd.

    My partition tables looks like this:

    /dev/hda1 9.5G 3.2G 5.9G 35% /
    /dev/hda2 60G 15G 45G 25% /multimedia
    /dev/hda3 ->swap


    There is enough free space on hda2. I would like to create a new partition where I can test other distros. I would like to take the free space from hda2, but I don't want to format/lose info on hda2. I want something like partition magic in windows.
    What is easiest way to create/resize a partition? What tool should I use?

    Thanks for your help

    Yep, parted (or parted with any of its front-end tools). Partition Magic - even better.

    Back up your data first...
