Yo; I'm fairly new to Fedora (And Linux in general, I've been switching
amongst Mandrake/SuSE/Debain & Redhat for a few years trying to find
which distro I like best), and am running Fedora 2 on a comp with a
somewhat faulty 13 GB HD. It was having some wierd problem where the
disk stalls whenever it wants and starts back up whenever it wants...
don't ask... and (*Somehow*) adding 128MB of memory all but fixed all
the quarks and bugs with this moody HD. Previously I could only get
part of the disk to work right, so I have a little 3.5GB partition for
the Fedora root...
ANYway, what can I do to easily resize the root partition to use
the remaining HD space that I have? Fedora Core 2 is the only OS on my
system (my documents are on another partition) Should I just run the
installer off the CD in *upgrade* mode (fc2 to fc2 that is) and resize
with disk druid? (I assume disk druid lets you resize... I've only ever
resized with Mandrake's utilities)
