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.

one approach to consider is mounting one partition to a point on the other. i have done this back in the megabyte-rated hard drive days, to gain more space.
i won't try to feed you any code, but do try "man mount" or "mount --help".
meanwhile, if this isn't a good way to handle this, i'd be glad to hear it.
Don't see how you could merge two partitions with different file systems!
If you have enough space, you could:
- move all files from one partition to the other
- delete the partition you just emptied
- and then extend the other partition with gparted, taking the space just liberated by deleting the other partition
You could also use a USB stick or external drive for moving around files. This takes some time but it should work!
Merge two adjacent partitions,you kust need a few steps to finish with the MiniTool Partition Wizard software. The MiniTool Partition Wizard 5.2 edition can do well.
To start merging partition, please click Merge from the Partition menu. Alternatively, you can start merging partition by clicking Merge Partition from the Action Panel.
Step one: Select partition you like to expand from the partition list. This partition will be expanded to include all content from the adjacent partition which will be selected in the second step.
Step two: Select an adjacent partition that will be merged to the previous partition. All data of this partition will be merged to the expanding partition that selected in the first step.
Step three: Choose a name for the new folder.
The drive E will be expanded to 139.54 GB. And the data of drive F will be stored to the e:\merged_partition_content.
