Re: Using Partition Magic with Debian



I have successfully used Partition Magic to alter the size of partitions
which already have assigned mount points (I installed from an MS-DOS
partition and then deleted the partition and made it part of root).  It
made the system scan the whole thing next time I booted up, but nothing
bad happened.  Try it on a partition which doesn't really matte first,
though, just to be safe.  :)
