Partitioning with Fedora Installer/Partition Magic
Okay, this is the situation:
I have just received (as in yesterday) an awesome new Athlon 64 3200+ gaming PC. Windows XP is fine and all, but I want to try Fedora Core 2 (the x86_64 version) to see how it runs on my new PC (I had the x86 version on my old one). I have a legal copy of PartitionMagic 8, so I installed that and told it to resize my Windows partition (c: ) so that there would be about 12 GB of free space for Linux. However, when PartitionMagic rebooted the system in order to apply the changes, it didn't do anything, but rather just went straight from "Applying Changes" to saying that it was finished. I assume that this is a problem with Partition Magic, but I'm not sure. I tried to resize the Windows partition several times to no avail.
So, unless someone knows what's going on with PM, I'd like to know if the Fedora installer can resize NTFS partitions without problems, or if there is some other way that I can do it that will work.
