Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

I just found out that I need a tmp partition on my notebook...
the problem is as follows:
Actually my partitions look like followed:
new I want to make the win98 partition smaller and use a part of the free space for the /tmp:
My question is not on how I do that... I just have freed the space and made out of the free space the new ext3 partition...
MY QUESTION IS: Which files do I have to change, now as I have a new partition and all the directors hdax, hday, hdaz, change...
-->Problem hdax becomes now hda(x+1)
Do I have to change the grub.conf (I use grub as bootloader)
besides that I suppose I have to add the line
/dev/hda5 /tmp ext3 defaults 0 0
to /etc/fstab (right?)
(I hope I made myself clear...)
grub.conf looks actually:
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2174.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb

I would have done if I could have done that... The problem was, that partition magic wasn't able to move the linux partitions and the only free space was the space behind the win98 part...
besides I have some entries in the fstab which seem to be positive for moving partitions:
You can assign a name to a partition and this is called a label. In your example the root partition is labeled as /. The benefits are if you move the root partition to another drive or another partition the bootloader is still able to find where it is. "
