Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Good way to remove a partition.

Hey, I've got my HD partitioned into two parts, the bulk of my HD being used for storage, as my friend suggested. I no longer want this partition. I've heard you can start an install of a certain linux OS to remove it, or buy some programs to do it. But what's the best way to get this done? Preferably the best, free way.

The goal of our founding fathers was freedom. The goal of our current politicians is control.

    1) Back up
    2) Download Knoppix or System Rescue CD, and burn the ISO onto a disc.
    3) Reboot your comp with the disc in the drive, boot into Knoppix/SystemRescueCD, and fire up GParted.
    4) Fuck around with your partitions at will.

    Mythbusters once cut a car in half and drove around in it to see if it would run. Even they were less poorly conveyed.
