    Here's what I did. I took 12 gigs off of my Windows partition, and 8 gigs off of my Linux partition, in hopes of creating a 20 gig partition for Vista. The problem is, I can only use either 12 or 8 gigs to make a partition, and can't add the rest of it on. Anyone know why this is happening? Here's what it looks like in PartitionMagic:



    Idk why both unallocated spaces don't just merge into one like they usually do. Anyone know how I can use all of the unallocated space to make one partition? Thanks in advance.

    You need to move the Linux swap and ext3 partitions into:
    A) The unallocated space between them and the Windows partition,or,
    B) To the unallocated space behind them.
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
