Partition problem
 
ok i had to reinstall open suse 10.2 cause i did something bad. anyways, i have an 80 gb hd and when i check my hd it says i only have 19 gb total, i think i screwed up partitioning it in the begining, teaches me to not do stuff half asleep. anyways i dont want to reinstall everything again because thats a pain. is there a way to add that missing space to my hd without reinstalling?

hey dranas...
boot from a live cd with gparted or qtparted, then resize the drive...
else? you pretty much gotta scrap the mbr and start again...

By using this utilities it will tell you the total size, if it is incorrect then I thing you have a problem with your disk it self
