    hda?

    I don't think you can change the "hda size" since hda stands for the first disk.
    But if meen changing size of different partitions on hda, like hda1, hda2...
    than it might be possible, it all depends on what filesystems are used.

    There are tools for changing the size of ext2, reiserfs and a few others. If you have an NTFS (Win) partition I wouldn't touch it without expecting a mess.

    I would also defenately consider backing **** up before resizing partitions.

    There are a lot of tools.
    Parted is one widely used.
    There should also be a package name ext2tools or ext2progs or something...

    good luck

    QParted is a frontend written in C++ and QT, It looks very much alike Partition Magic. Might give that a try

    Good luck
