GParted


OK, nother question. I had 3 partitions
NTFS
linux-swap
reiserfs

I am running a live version of ubuntu and installing gparted on it.
I wanted to resise the linux-swap and move it to the beginning, and delete the NTFS. I succeeded in deleting the NTFS. I was not able to move/resise the swap because the live runs off of it. I triewd to make a new linux-swap at the beginning of the drive, but the live version tries to utilise both swap partitions.
What I have now looks like
linux-swap
empty
linux-swap
reiserfs

What I want it to look lie is
linux-swap
reiserfs


Anybody got any tips or trick to get this done?

I guess what I'm kind of hoping for, is a way to force the live session to only use a specific partition.

Another question on this, I'm altering the whole setup quite a bit and leaving my files in the center of the HD, is there anything that is equivilant to M$ disk defrag?
