[FC5] Change file system & merge drive without lossing data???



Hi,

I have one 40GB drive and this is where I have my FC5 installed.
Besides, I have another drive 30GB drive, which I partitioned into
20GB(movies) and 10GB(mp3) vfat (FAT32) filesystem. It is almost full.
Obviously the reason for VFAT is so that I can use it with Windows
machine but I want to change the file system of this drive to ext3 and
merge them into one partition (single drive single partition) to use
it solely with my FC5.

====================
20GB + 10GB = 30GB single drive and (ext3 file system)
====================

I know backing up is the good practice but I have no extra drive to
backup my files. So may be I need to change this first two drive into
ext3 and then merge them together.

is it possible what I am thinking of???

by the way from the previous post I was able to figure out that there
is partitioning tools like parted, Gparted and QTparted.

I had installed these but I am lost.

Gparted shows my drives but no menu is active (do I need to unmount
the drive first??)
QTparted shows my drives and only format drive is active.

If its possible, can somebody guide me how to accomplish this???

Thanks!
