Re: removing EISA partition

Hi Hiisi,
use parted to see the exact layout of your HD

Dear fedora-list members!
On my girlfriend's laptop (Samsung R40) running Fedora 9 is disk shortage problem. It had 60 Gb hard drive when she brought it a few years ago with Windows XP already installed. She used it some time before last summer I convinced her to switch to Fedora. I formatted disk with standard layout during installation process. As I can see now it has only 51G instead of 60:
$ df -H
Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on
                                 51G    31G    18G  65% /
/dev/sda1              200M    27M   163M  14% /boot
tmpfs                      995M    66k   995M   1% /dev/shm
gvfs-fuse-daemon 51G    31G    18G  65% /home/Tarja/.gvfs
I heard somewhere if Windows was installed by manufacturer there's system config partition called "EISA". I suppose it allocated on those 9G. How can one kill it and union to the existent filesystem? I googled the problem but found only howto in Windows.
Thanks in advance.
