well i only make my startup partiton 8GB... and now it's only got about 1GB free and i keep getting 'disk full' warnings. so i thought i could join my scratch partiton with my startup partiton to get some more space for Panther. in Disk Utility i've got the Panther partiton, then my scratch partiton, and last on the list is my documents/storage partition. i just wanted to ask... is there any way i can join those two partitons without doing any damage to my documents partition? hopefully someone out there knows what Disk Utility is capable of more than me. or is there another utility that would allow me to do this? thanks for any help.
