adding more space ..

I love Arch so much that i want to give it a few extra GB´s ..
my reiserfs partition is on disc0/part6 and my swap is disc0/part7 (hde6 and hde7).
i have partition magic installed on windows and i was wondering if i used it to enlarge the hde6 partition would it cause any sort of damage to it ?

Re: adding more space ..

I've used PartitionMagic, but ages ago.

First: does PM support ReiserFS? (i don't know, when i used PM it didn't)

Second: if it does, PM normally is able to resize the partition, but consider the possibility of a failure like loss of power during resizing. Once, when i resized the computer died during that time so my partition was screwed. But that doesn't mean it wouldn't work for you.

Reiser supplies its own resizing utilities.  Research it.
