You should backup all the data first, just in case, then defrag and optimize the partition to get all the data together.
I would guess that increasing the size can only be done if there is space available after the partition, which means you would need to remove the next partition. I doubt that it could resize from the start instead of from the end.

...saying that I could download knoppix just for the qtparted thingummy, partition, then clear it out? (presuming I'm going to be die-hard over my new Ubuntu CDs...)
Not quite. Knoppix runs off of a CD, so there is nothing to clear out. It is a good tool to have, even if you run Windoze, but especially if you run Linux. You could run Knoppix all the time, but I don't do that.

Knoppix is an OS and so you need to be running that. Make sure you first do a backup, then defrag the disk. After that you can boot Knoppix from the CD and run qtparted. You will need to run as root, so after it boots, you need to open a window, then type "su" to become root, then type "qtparted" and hit return. The GUI will come up and hopefully you can figure it out from there :-).

I run knoppix live, and from the OS run Qparted.
Qparted is not a program that runs from startup, in other words.

Yes, you would boot the Knoppix CD and run the program.

It just seems weird to me that an OS can repartition a drive when it's in one of them. Would Knoppix be able to repartition if it was installed?
