    I am having trouble loading any Linux on the subject lap top. I 
tried 2 LiveCD of Hardy and they error out to Busybox always. I tried 
the 8.10 LiveCD and it comes up fine but I'm having a problem. Here is 
what it looks like to GParted:

/dev/sda1    ntfs          139.71 GB  using 20.54 GB UNused 119.17
/dev/sda2    ntfs    label PRESARIO_RP 9.34 GB using 7.64
Unallocated   1.34 MB

    Need to get some of /dev/sda1, like 100 GB moved to Unallocated but 
it has an error every time I try to Resize/Move /dev/sda1. What am I 
doing wrong?
