make new Partiton for backup while re-install
i dont have a working cd-writer, and now im a little more experianced with linux i want to do a clean install.
basically to clean up all the stuff i dont need, but installed just in case ect ect ect.
BUT, ive downloaded 100's or megs of software, (on a 56k modem) and not looking forward to have to re-download most of it.
how would i create a new partition out my my existing space ?
(preferably FAT32 but EXT3 would be ok)
then, i assume i could re install linux on the disk, (but not damage the new partition and then copy all the data back onto my main linux partition.
then.. could i remove the new partition, and integrate its memory back into the main linux partiton ???
i know its a big task, but anything is better than re-downloading.
(i have no spare hard disks, or local network, so that is not an option)
