    how to changing directory to another partition?


    Hi
    I have both windows vista and fedora 8 on the computer. My /usr is expanding fast, so I want to give it more space. The plan is to shrink the windows partition and create a new partition for /usr.
    The question is, how do I change /usr from the current partition (volume: /) to the new partition? Can I do this by simply specifying the mount point to be /usr when I create the new partition, or should I create the partition first and then do the switch?
    Many thanks

    try the partedmagic cd link here
    you need to burn the iso, and since youve got linux installed i assume you can do that.

    I would suggest you to post the output of fdisk -l command before creating new partition. New partition might change partition order and Fedora will not boot up after that.
    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
