Format drive


Is there a program similar to parition magic for windoze that will merge partitions? I'm dual-booting MDK9 and WIN2K, and only use windows for a few games I dont want to give up, so I resized my NTFS parition with partition magic, and if at all possible, would like to allocate the empty space in between partitions to the MDK ext3 partition. If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it, but if it cant be done, I'll just throw another Linux distro in there =)

I'm pretty sure that can be done with Partition Magic.

Well the reason I asked was because partition magic (i believe v7) sees my ext3 partition as ext2. I wasn't sure if that would foul up the partition, since I've got my os install on there and dont want to have to scrap it

Crap. Never mind. NTFS system. Evil.

Edit 3: Actually, it still applies. If all you want to do is mess with your Linux systems, then parted and cfdisk. I always see Partition Magic. The GNU tools are all you need for fat and Linux partitions. The only need for anything else is for NTFS.
