how to move data in partitioning
i'm sure this question must have come up, but of the 10 posts on partitioning i read i didn't find anything useful, so bare with me and i'm sorry if i ask something trivial.
i dual boot win xp with debian, 20 GB drive, i set up debian in such a way that hda1 is xp, hda2 is shared fat, hda3 is debian boot, and hda4 is a a logic volume with seperate partitions for /usr, /home, /, /var, /tmp, and another shared fat (however windows will only recognize one of the two, but that's besides the point)
Anyways, I'm trying to install freebsd 5.3 on this old box, and i partition magic'ed it in xp and i suppose because of all the complications the program cannot start itself, saying an error 117 or other. So here's the question:
How do you move all the data in my windows xp partition to the beginning using some partition tool so i can squeeze out another 4 GB or so from this ntfs partition? Being a newbie and having erased the entire harddrive before (with fdisk), I'd like some advice/guidance before I start again.
Thanks a bunch in advance!
