http://ubuntuforums.org – I am trying to dual-boot a very old Windows XP with Ubuntu. I knew I would have problems changing the partitioning on the drive. XP is using ~50% of the drive space. I would like to shrink it and make another space for Ubuntu that is ~25% of hard drive. When I used the System Rescue CD (www.sysresccd.org), I went into the normal GUI with GParted and it would not let me move SDA1 NTFS (XP). I know there is a way to do this with the command line and I know that it works. I just need instructions. :confused: Please Help (Hardware)
