Dual distros on a drive already devoted wholly to 1


Say I got Fedora on a USB and wanted to do a dual install. My drive is already set to have my Dreamlinux on it. The whole thing. If I were to do an install so I could have both fedora and Dreamlinux, Would it re-partition (I assume yes cause it has to go somewhere) and if so would I lose data or suffer any kind of loss, and how do I know what will be altered so I can back it up beforehand?

Get pmagic to resize your Dreamlinux partition. It's safe and easy to use.

Sounds like the perfect solution. From it's list of features it's something that'd just be nice to have around anyways. Thanks!
