Need to resize partition
my C drive, boot drive, has both Windows and Linux on it.

I can't figure out the linux stuff, so I wanna minimize the space it takes up without deleting it - in other words, I wanna keep the linux boot sector (it boots to lilo or that other program, forgot its name).

How do I do this?

Remember, my linux stuff is on the same HD as my Windows, meaning I can't change anything on it since I am running it.

Partition Magic.

Partition Magic doesn't like Linux, so it's YMMV.

It doesn't? When I used PM back in the day it supported ext2. No longer?

I kept getting Error #108 with Partition Magic 8 when I was trying to do some partition changes to a hard drive that had a dual boot on it with Windows/Linux recently. I wound up just LLF-ing the drive and starting over.

So is there any other program besides PM8 that will do it or is that simply the only logical choice.

Which distro of linux are you running?

Well, discdrake(?) can resize partitions, though I'm not sure how well it does with ntfs.
