Question about Computers & Internet
You will have to use third party software to accomplish that task.
There are several options out there, but in the end it comes down to the question how much you are willing to pay for it.
Two excellent options are
1. Partition Magic (from Symantec). Cost about 70$
2. gparted (sourceforge). GPL = free.
I personally prefer gparted, because I'm not using these programs too often to justify the expense.
At any rate: this is something you want to be careful about and it is ALWAYS possible, that the installation on your harddrive goes south and you have to reinstall your operating system.
Although I never had a problem, you want to be prepared.
Read the documentation and manual page before you start.
If you can, do this with a friend or have at least another computer nearby for internet access, in case you need to find information.
In the end, I always find it satisfying and I hope so will you.
