I have a 40 gig HD with RedHat installed and a Fat32 chunch set aside for moving files between windows and linux. I am taking a class that uses Solaris and now thats its free I would like to install Solaris to.
So what I want to be able to do is make some room to install it with out loosing my linux install. I could use the shared chunch but I would rather not. So is there a program that can take my extra free space out of my linux partitions and free it up to install Solaris.

Thanks for the help.

Have you tried Partition Magic 8.0?

Partition Magic 8.0 can resize Ext2, Ext3, and linux swap file systems ... it can not resize reiserfs, jfs or xfs file systems.

Is there any solution that doesn't involve me buying an 80 dollar piece of software? Perhaps something in the open source world?

GNU parted is supposed to resize ext3 partitions ... it doesn't work. There is no point and click software (like Partition Magic) for Linux.

This post is a guide to resizing ext3 partitions.

The only method for resizing ext3 partitions that I have found is to convert the ext3 partition to ext2 (see this post).

Then follow the steps in the first link ....

Hello! I have some experience with partition magic 8.0, and believe me this software is very good. Well i must admit i never use it to partition linux partitions but i think it is good for them too.
