I have a system which has three operatioin systems (WinXP, FreeBSD,
and Ubuntu). Nowadays, I found myself that I'm not using FreeBSD very
much in this machine, so I would like to delete FreeBSD partition to
give more HDD space for Ubuntu.
This is my fdisk print out.
Disk /dev/hda: 122.9 GB, 122942324736 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14946 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 3824 30716248+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 3825 7740 31455270 a5 FreeBSD
/dev/hda3 7741 14758 56372085 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 14759 14946 1510110 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 14759 14946 1510078+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
How do I remove FreeBSD partition and give that space for Ubuntu's
use? (I barely knows some of the steps, but would like to hear from
some experienced people because I do not want to screw up my machine.)
