I put a bigger hard disk in my G4 PowerBook a while back and reserved 30 GiBi after the Mac partition for an eventual dual-boot Linux install. Now that i'm ready to do this, i discover that the Linux partition [checked both Yellow Dog and Gentoo] needs to be BEFORE the Mac partition.

Is there some sort of tool/bootable disk out there that will allow me to delete the Linux partition [I know this can be done in Disk Utility] and move the Mac partition to the end of the disk "on the fly"? I know that such things are available for PeeCees... :confused: I'm just trying to avoid reinstalling again.

I don't think there is a tool for that. Check out iPartition, though. In any event, you won't have to reinstall. Just back up the Mac partition, do your partitioning, and then restore the Mac partition.
