    Recovering from default partitioning


    So, I wan't completely paying attention to the default partitioning that Red Hat Enterprise 6 does.

    I was setting up a base image for VMWare and the disk was 200GB, but for some reason the default is for about 40% to go to the root partition and then the rest of it to go to /home (this doesn't include the 2GB or so in swap).

    Is there an easy way to recover the space under /home and expand the root partition? Assume there are no user accounts created.
