Currently I have FC1, and I want to dual boot with another Linux distro.
After searching I found this thread:
which is similar to what I want to do, except I don't need the WinXP option.
So, following from that I think I should shrink my / partition to make space for the new distros /, but I can share the /boot and swap partitions between both.
Is there a non destructive way to shrink the / partition? And what name should I give the new space or is it allocated automatically?
For the name I figured I perhaps just use /dev/hda5 or whatever was not being used, but if I do
[root@localhost root]# ls /dev/hda*
/dev/hda /dev/hda13 /dev/hda18 /dev/hda22 /dev/hda27 /dev/hda31 /dev/hda7
/dev/hda1 /dev/hda14 /dev/hda19 /dev/hda23 /dev/hda28 /dev/hda32 /dev/hda8
/dev/hda10 /dev/hda15 /dev/hda2 /dev/hda24 /dev/hda29 /dev/hda4 /dev/hda9
/dev/hda11 /dev/hda16 /dev/hda20 /dev/hda25 /dev/hda3 /dev/hda5
/dev/hda12 /dev/hda17 /dev/hda21 /dev/hda26 /dev/hda30 /dev/hda6
it seems that I already have /dev/hda0-32 in use
Still 2 steps forward and one step back for this
Thanks to all for any suggestions
