A good friend of mine unknowingly convinced me to try out Ubuntu Linux. Armed with version 6.06 I tried the bootable install disc. Impressively, this disc booted directly into the OS, a live version running directly off the CD. Setup would be as simple as clicking the “install” shortcut on the desktop.
Yet it’s never that simple, is it? I need a partition to install Ubuntu on. I have space for such a partition, but I haven’t enough space to wipe the entire drive and format/partition. As such, I’m in need of reliable partitioning software that’ll rescale current partitions and create a new one for Ubuntu.
Does anyone have advice for rescaling partitions? Software (preferrably free) recommendations? Ubuntu specific install tips?
