http://forums.opensuse.org – Hey guys I am fairly new with this so bare with me. I just recently built a new computer (1st build) and installed Suse 11.2 as a fresh install on a brand new 500 GB hard drive. Everything is up and running fine. I am wanting to make it a dual boot machine by adding XP, but when I go to use the partitioner it won't let me resize my partitions to make space for XP. It is currently set up with: 2 GB Swap 20 GB / The rest is /home I go to resize the /home partition down to make room for an XP partition & it says it can't do it, I need to unmount the drive. I unmount that partition & it throws me an error not letting me resize. What do I need to do to get this working? Thanks for your help (Distributions)
