Question Reallocating free Space


Hey all,

I have a linux box and I need to reallocate free space from one partition to another. ex: from /usr to /home. Is there a way to do that without loosing information? I don't want to reformat if possible.

Thanks,

Stratos.-

I researched a bit more and it looks like GNU parted will do what I want. If there is another way please let me know.

Thanks.-

parted or commercial PartitionMagic. Both are good, but they have different interfaces
