I had windows in my pc (I still do) and I downloaded Ubuntu Dapper on june 1st. It is great, I like it. I initially took 10Gb from windows space (using gparted from the live cd desktop) and I installed ubuntu in this 10Gb.
/dev/sda1 c: 15Gb
/dev/sda5 d: 50Gb+
/dev/sda6 / 7Gb
/dev/sda7 swap 512Mb
/dev/sda8 /home 2Gb+
But now I plan to use ubuntu as my main operating system, without removing windows completely. What I want to do is to re-arrange things a little bit in my hard drive so that I can have a bigger /home
I'd like to use D's 50Gb as /home, move the existing /home into it, and maintaining there what I already have in D, then expanding / with the current /home of 2Gb, but I have the swap in between.
Any suggestions? How can achieve this, or something similar? I have Partition Magic, so that is an option, just in case you asked. I am not afraid of the CLI or other techi solutions. I do not require the fancy GUIs of pmagic and gparted. I just want to solve me problem.
I am also open to suggestions to change the rearragements I've planned, provided I end up with a greater space for /home. And I am also willing to re-install windows if needed. What I want to maintain is what I currently have in /home, in / and in D. I've already made a few "apt-get install" from the net (500Gb more or less) and I wouldn't like to download all that again.
