I have a Win ME partition, 2 gig, and two Fedora Core partitions, 3 gig
and 5 gig. When I first used Fedora, I had windows on a 7 gig drive and
used my backup D drive for FedC1. I have read that there is a disk
partitioning program that will split your windows, or any partition,
for you. I think FedCores disks that have DiskDruid are able to do the
same thing. Don't brood over this to much because I have used Linux for
only one and a half months...
