Is it possible to re-partition a drive w/o havong to re-intall RH9? After I installed RH9 windows screwed up, so I'm just gonna run RH9 only.

It might be possible. You'll have to let us know what filesystem it is that you want to resize/repartition. I'd be very weary of messing with the / partition though. You may want to make a FULL backup before doing anything if the drive you want to partition is integral to the system running.

Cool
