    harpoon post your partition scheme as you see after the suse disk partioner starts.

    For this just boot the install disk, and come till the stage where you have to select custom disk parttioning.

    Write here what you see in /dev/hda
    Write in the same order. Then once we see that its easy to restore your partiions.

    buddy if ur using WindowsXP. then ur prob is almost solved. Right click MY COMPUTER icon, click manage. A management console will pop up. navigate to storage>disk management. right click on the drive, u want to edit n choose the option depending on ur requirement.

    Or pop in a Knoppix CD and start QTparted ... it is a gui partition resizing tool... If you are comfortable with command line then use # cfdisk ... cfdisk is much better and recommended by me than fdisk and sfdisk ....

    You need to delete your unwanted partitions and create a single disk with the free space...

    u can also use partition magic to fix it
    tho windows xp's disk management is pretty good
