Change the size of /home?


Hi,
Is there a way for me to make /home larger and /usr smaller, without loosing any data? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Well I'm assuming that you have partitioned /home and /usr and now you want to change the size. You want to look into the 'parted' command.

All commands seem reference a MINOR. When I display the partition table, I see 7 minors, which one is my main filesystem on?

Use "mount" to display the mounted partitions. i.e.

Code:
[root@localhost root]# mount
/dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw)
