Partitions on my HDD.
Hello everybody,
I want to install Slackware 10.0 into my HDD, but use Windows XP too. My HDD is 37 Gb, 256 SDRAM.
1st partition "Windows XP". NTFS (it's for Windows XP), 3 Gb size.
2on partition "Documents". NTFS too (for my documents: video, games, music and ...). 34 Gb size.
I want to resize my 2nd partition to ~20-28 Gb and create a few new partitions for Slackware 10.0.
How I can do it easy? How much new partitions I should create, what size?
(Can I do this from win32?, maybe with Partition Magic 8?)
Thank's, I'am waiting.

RIP linux has a rescue floppy that includes ntfsresize which you can use to resize your ntfs with. Then use fdisk on slackware install CD to create new partitions in the empty space.

With all due respect, use cfdisk rather than fdisk. Much better app
and more intuitive, unless you're a masochist. ;}

And I've not used it in about 2 years, but won't Partition Magic 8 resize ntfs?
