How to resize a partition and create/mount a new partition?


Hi all,

When I just installed Linux, I made a partition and mounted it as /srv. Now I like to resize this partition from 17 Gb to approximately 7 Gb.

After that I like to create a new partition of the freed 10 Gb and mount that partition as /music.

I use SuSE Linux 9.1.

Can anyone tell me how to do this or what command/utilities to use, so I can find more information?

Thank you for your time,

Maarten
