Shrink os partition using Gparted


Hi,

I would like to shrink my os partition without messing with it's data, to make room for a 2nd os. Will this happen if I command Gparted to Resize?

Thanks for your time

First backup your data before proceeding.

Kind regards

Thanks a lot Repo, I see you like Slackware; do you have any strong prefs? I've tried OpenSuse and now I'm thinking of Sabayon
