Greetings all,
I'm using an Asus EEE PC 900A running eeebuntu. I love my little linux netbook, but my only regret is that I only have 6 tiny GB of storage using the built in SSD that came with the netbook. Recently, I found a 2GB SD card on sale and I purchased it in the hopes of being able to apply it to my EEE PC with the goal of extending my storage space. Granted, I realize 2 GB isn't really that much of a gain in storage space, but still, it would be beneficial.

I'm wondering if there is anyway to set up my netbook/eeebuntu to see the SD card as part of SSD in order to extending the storage space I have available on my netbook. I tried finding a way to do this using Partition Editor, but I had no luck.

I would prefer to be able to do this without having to wipe and reinstall my OS, but if thats the only way to accomplish my goal, I'll go with it.

Thanks in advance!
