Partitioning


#1 The problem here is that I only made my "/" mount point partition 2gb and my "/home" partition 10GB. Will I need more space on my "/" partition for installing applications? If I do is there a way i could resize both partitions and transfer space from "/home" to "/"?

#2 What would be the most recommended FTP and Web Editing Tools?

Thanks in advance.

Using Mandrake 9.2
KDE 3.1 Eviroment

You could always add more partitions later

If for example /usr/ is taking up much space you could add another partition and mount it for that folder.

I am not sure if and how the files are transfered to the new partition though, perhaps a reboot?
