Question move partitions

hi all,

for several days i'm searching for an answer to the following question:

on my notebook theres xp and mandrake installed.
since i now almost only use mandy i need more diskspace. so i deleted a windows partition. it looks now like this:

|-- fat32 --|-- ntfs --|-- no fs --|-- swap --|-- boot --|-- home --|

when i'm no create in the empty space an ext2 or ext3 partition the kernel panics on boot :-(

furthermore i would like to move the whole linux-system, so that i can add the new space to home

|-- fat32 --|-- ntfs --|-- swap --|-- boot --|-- home -- + -- new --|

partition magic can't do this job and i think i'm to dumb to use parted...

anyone got help for a dumb newbie, a good tutorial or something like that?

thx a lot

Do you have Mandrake installation cds? If you have, boot from the first one and go to partitioning. You will be able to do all you need in graphical mode. When you finish, save the changes and reboot.
