Default partitioning


When I installed Linux (Fedora if that makes a difference) I just let it create the partitions it wanted and it works fine, but I noticed the sizes it created are quite small. I have tons of HD space. Can I make the existing partitions larger, or would I need to reinstall it and create the partition size myself .

What partitioning did it do for you? Typically Fedora will use available space. Can you post the output of fdisk -l
