Get the new version of Partition Magic, Version 4.0.  It will give you some
extra space without destroying data and the newest version is more Linux
friendly.  The new version also lets you change FAT32 drives back to FAT16.
PM isn't hard to use assuming you've dealt with HD setup in the past.  ( I
hadn't, so I struggled a bit )

If you're really short on HD space, PM works quite well off the floppy disk
without installing on your HD.

I don't think the new ver of PM is available in stores yet.  It's available
online at:  for about $70.00.

|You might be able to use Partition Magic to adjust the partitions.  I know
|it recognizes the Linux partitions, but I'm not sure if it manipulates
|them.  Also, are you using a computer that isn't able to run in LBA mode
|for the hard drives?  That's the only time I'd ever run those overlay
|programs.  As I understand the way Disk Mangler (Manager) runs is to put a
|bunch of control structures in the Master Boot Record and, I believe,
|that's where LILO lives.  I could be that you've got a war over control
|there.  I'm still trying to figure Linux out myself, but that would be my
|guess on the hardware problems.
|Good luck,
