    Well im dual booting windows vista and leopard with vista installed first on my custom built pc and I want to expand the size of my leopard partition and shrink the vista partition. I tried using GParted but it wouldn't let me expand my leopard partition when i shrunk my windows partition using the disk management feature on vista. That left me with "free space".

    So how can i add this free space to my leopard partition? Or do i have to do something else?

    uuh well that would defeat the purpose of me starting this thread. the whole point of this is so i dont lose any data or reinstall anything.
