I gotta say... if someone could do what iParition does on linux/bsd
drives... it would be AMAZING.
its sincerely an amazing app. shrink / grow / reorder partitions on
live drives with no data loss.
i was able to turn a half filled storage drive into a 2 partition
disk- 1 with all the storage, the dead space into a bootable mirror
of my g5's hard drive... and then reorder it so older macs will boot
it ( first few will only boot off the first partition ). it only
works on hfs though. suckass.
