    I have been using Powerquest Partition Magic 6 & 7 for quite some time now and I have never had a problem with either of them. I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that it all comes back to "RTFM" (Read The F****ng Manual".
    Persist with the program and do your homework and I think you will find that it can do the job for you.
    Kind Regards Jim.

    Yes I know what you mean, I have had this error before. I can tell you how to stop it happening again. If you install Linux, dont allow it to make partitions, do it with PM7 first. Sorry I cant be anymore help

    You can change the partitions from inside Linux without losing data. I can and I run Mandrake.

    Not sure it can handle NTFS. The NTFS standard isn't very open to the public you know.

    1. Start up the X-server (with KDE or Gnome or whaterver). Use "startx" if it doesn't do it when you start up.
    2. Run Harddrake (Configuration > Hardware > Harddrake)
    3. Choose disks, your drive and press "Run configuration tool"

    You must unmount the partition before you can change it. You cannot change the root (/) partition.
