Hello folks,
  After a very frustrating laptop hard disk failure, I am back up and
  running. This last weekend I decided to get Linux re-installed onto
  my computer in case of another drive failure. I have noticed,
  though, that my hard drive simply will not repartition itself when I
  use Partition Magic. Is this a property of NTFS under Windows? If
  so, will fdisk in the Slackware setup be able to resize the
  partitions on the drive so I can install it? Sorry for the somewhat
  abckwards question, but I can't see any way around this aside from
  reformatting the drive, which right now isn't an option.
  Thanks very much for any assistance,

Stephen Clower, that guy from the south.
