Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

FC7 x86_64. 160 gig harddrive
I'am running Gparted on my Harddrive and I have a 9.00 gig unallocated
partition, and I want to resize my /home partition to include that 9.00gig .
When I do the resize on /home it says that I can only resize /home,
/home 96.90 gig (present size)
/home 99230 (is max. size it will allow me to resize)
/home 44303 ( is the min. size it will allow)
The present size of /home 96.90 gig and adding 9.00 gig to that
would make a total of 105.90 gig for /home, why is it that Gparted
will only allow me to resize to 99230 gig, instead of the full 105.90gig ??
First, a semantic nitpick: You would not re-size /home, you would re-size the partition which is mounted at /home---eg /dev/sda3, /dev/hdb4---somthing like that.
Please do "fdisk -l" and "df" (running as root) and post the results here
The partition should be mounted when doing the above commands, but NOT mounted when attempting to re-size it. Ideally, you would run GParted from a LiveCD so that you are not running any risk of re-sizing a partition that is in use.
