    Good point. One of the BIG attractions for me about Linux. Using Linux helped remove a terrible temptation I had to deal with before (when using Windows and had not shifted to Linux).

    Hi, easier... if you download two applications:
    rfstool0.14 and YAReg (under windows)
    and unpack both in the same directory... double click on YAReg (gui)
    you'll be able to see the REISERF partition (SUSE)
    and bring the applications-files you have there to windows
    just drag and dropping....
    Regards. Hope it helps.

    Thanks, I didn't know of this. I'll search for these and try them out.

    I know, I know. I just mean that I could if I wanted to.

    Im downloading the two programs now.

    Thanks a bundle.

    Problem, the program keeps on freezing up when I move the file I want onto Windows.

    Besides PM, whats the other program you are trying. If it is YAReg, I think you need some MS visual studio.net plugin to make it work properly. I forgot what it is called, but it can be downloaded from MS.

    Also, how big are the files you are trying to move? If it is several hundreds of megs, you might as well burn a cd and be done with it.

    Unfortunetally, its 4.5GB... I don't have a DVD burner, the file is .avi files and .mp3 files.

    I had the .net thing installed.

    What should I do?

    I also tried copying over a 600MB video from SUSE to win, YAReg and Windows froze on me, so my guess is that it can't handle that large files.

    Well, the only other thing to do is to create a fat partition unless you want to burn stuff to ~10 cds. Now, below I will outline how to use YAST to resize the windows drive for you.

    Firstly, launch windows and defrag the drive a few times (2 - 4)

    Secondly, launch suse, and unmount the windows drive. e.g. umount /windows

    Thirdly, launch yast -> system -> partitioner. Highlight your windows partition and hit resize. Move the slider from right to left to allocate more space for linux. Alternatively, you can type the size of the partition you want in MB.

    Then highlight the new partition, give it some mount point, e.g. /windows/d and tell the system to format it as FAT.

    Question about SuSE parititioner

    I've never used the SuSE partitioner this way before, and I may try it on a couple of PCs. My wife wants more space from the NTFS partition on her PC, given to the Reiser on her PC. I also want to the same resizing on my PC.

    I am in the process of backing up "key/important" information, but I am curious, can I expect all data on the Reiser to be wiped when I increase size? (I don't care about the data on the NTFS).
