This might not be a newb question, but i'm a newb asking a question...
I've had SuSE 9.1 professional installed for a while now, but I now realize that I need a Windows Dual-Boot. So I've learned the hard way that if you want a dual-boot, install windows first. My hard-drive is divided into three partitions, the Boot, / (reiser), and a swap file space. I found GNU Parted and installed it. It gave an error about unmounting it first. So I tried to umount it but it was in use. So (after extensive googling) I switched to runlevel 1, then umounted it. So I again tried to resize it. But it said it was not unmounted. I'm guessing that when I run Parted it started using the partition and i'm not allowed to resize when its in use. So then I found the Parted boot disks, to try and not use the hard drive, but they did not support the reiserFS. So I'm now at a loss to find out how to resize it.
