    PartitionMagic 8 won't install on my computer for some odd reason. "The install wizard was interrupted" it says. Which it wasn't. Makes me think that SP2 is incompatible with it or something. So is there any other progam like PartitionMagic 8 that resizes partitions?

    If you created the two floppies from partition magic from a previous install use them at startup.

    yeah! And let me know how it goes - I have PM and might want to use it with SP2 sometime, so if it is broken I will not be happy....

    [EDIT] Is error on trying to install PM 8? I already have it installed with SP2 and just fired it up and it looks to run fine, but still try booting off the PM discs, that should work since it has it's own OS and would leave SP2 completely out of the equation [/EDIT]
