Need Rescue/LiveCD/w reiserFS supported Parted
By some strokes of stupidity and in the interested of "hummm wonder if this will work", I believe I require a rescue/LiveCd that features a version of Parted that supports the ReiserFS filesystem.

I have a Slackware 9.0 rescue disk, but no reiser support there.
I have a Symphony OS alpha 4 liveCD (based off of Knoppix, but with a pretty interface) and no luck with it's version of parted either.

so basically I need some way of using Parted to mess with some reisersFS partitons in a rescue/LiveCd environment.

Any help appresiated.



After using dd to copy paritions, I found out that for some reason when I was copying a 20gb (taking up 15 gb, with 5gb free space) to a 40 gb partition, it re-sized the partition to take up 35gb's of space, with 5gb free. I used the conv=notrunc option, would this cause this?

I belive all the corrent knoppix disks have both parted and support reiserfs. 3.9 is the newest I believe, and that will do it for you.

Yes it does, most rescue type CDs and distros have included support for reiserfs, as it has become popular and many folks use it now.
