If you have it on CD, just stick it into your drive and boot from it. If your CD isn''t bootable, make a linux boot floppy (there are howto''s on the net). Nowadays, Linux distributions come with their own partition tools. I''m not sure Partition magic supports ext2 partitions.

LOL! Yeah, today, you still must use fdisk/cfdisk for Slackware... But I''m down with that cfdisk is actually REALLY easy to use.

I love partition magic! It''s all I use for partitioning now. I''ve used a couple different versions, and they all definatly supported ext2. I think it actually just calls it a linux partition.

If you have partition magic and have in installed under windows right now, you can just run it, set up the new partition sceme, and click apply. it''ll reboot your computer do the work and start it back up (maybe... if you delete the windows partition completely it won''t start back up...)
Or you could use the partition magic boot disk to do it too....

...Or maybe mine works different than yours... It seems I''m the only one I know that bought a copy, and everyone else seems to have a different version...
