Unfortunately, for some reason after the auto-download update by Mandriva the application would not boot up. My original installation space was taken from C:\ reducing the Windows XP Pro partition size. I gave Linux 10 GB to see if I like using Linux, which I do!
On advice from Mandriva Israel www.mandriva.co.il
I reinstalled Mandriva. I did as the Wizard showed replace the existing, what I got was saddling the Swap file two separate Linux format partitions. Now I am wondering whether I can merge the three sections without damaging the Linux installation. The swap file was the only partition according to Partition Magic 8.0 that shows as able to manage, merge etc.
Anyone know of a good Linux Partition Management programme that I can download or have any other ideas on the subject. Besides merging I would like to enlarge the Linux partition.
Thanking you in advance
