Alright, so I've been trying very hard to try and get my main partition to take up the whole hard drive after deleting Debian (needed more space). But in Disk Utility, I can't move my partition up; strangely, the free space seems disconnected from the main partition (unless this is how it's supposed to look and I've just forgotten). I've tried booting into the Leopard installer and doing it from there; yet it still didn't work. I've tried using a Lubuntu live CD and using GParted (and even parted) to try and move the partition but I get the error "Sorry, HFS+ cannot be resized that way yet.". Hell, I've even tried grabbing a SATA to USB adapter; plugging in a hard drive, making a bootable backup of the internal hard drive using Carbon Copy Cloner, booting off that, format the internal hard drive, and make another Carbon Copy Cloner backup to the internal hard drive again; but I can't do that either because my Powerbook refuses to boot off of USB for some strange (and frustrating) reason, and it doesn't matter if I'm trying OpenFirmware or holding down the option key at startup. I'm lost here. What can I do? I've also included a picture of the partition map from Disk Utility; maybe some of you guys can see something wrong with it or something. Thanks.
