    Resizing XP and ReiserFS Partitons

    Has anyone one had any luck with this? My bro wants to increase his Windows XP (non-ntfs) partition at the expense of his reiserfs partition. If any free apps for this even better.

    Thanks!

    GNU Parted sounds like it fits the bill.

    Cheers

    Both drives have to be unmounted, so I'd recommend using a live CD with qt_parted...

    Yeah, I've done FAT and reiser, no problems so far. Just make sure the reiser comes after the FAT, otherwise windows won't boot.

    Ok I was thinking. You mean put the new free space at the end of the win partition. Will give this a try.

    Yes, meaning that windows comes first on the bar at the top.
