Man, you're good. It's up and running and I am a happy Linux newbie once again. Phew!
Let me ask you one more question if I can.
I now have a device called /dev/hda7 that's 6GB. I want to simply merge it with /dev/hda8 so that the main Linux partition has room to grow.
Now I know to do this within Linux, and I can do it using Yast in Suse 8.2. Can you provide me some general advice on how to do this so I don't encounter any problems?
Also, I was prepared to pay someone to help me do this, and since you did it for free, I thought I would make a contribution to some Linux non-profit. You have any one you can recommend or like? There's the Free Software Foundation in the States, but also kde.org. Just let me know.
Again, thank you!
