Change partition size after installation


Hi guys,

I have just set up a server installed the OS, put some data in etc.. now realise /home is not enough. We want to increase the size for this partition by taking some from the others (like /var and / , which are individual partitions)

is it possible, and how?

I used knoppix and qtparted to resize a fat32 partition and it worked great! be sure to make a back up, though. according to my experience, if you make backups, you won't need them. but if you don't - murphy's law will strike mercilessly.
