Moving from one partition to the other
I googled a few things about moving my Linux primary partition to a logical partition. I really wish i did this on the install... Anyway, what i'd like to do is change up some partitioning so i have room for a boot partition.
Partition 1: Windows
P4: Shared documents (with files and the "program files" folders from Windows)
P3: (Extended) Ubuntu
P3-A: OS (logical)
P3-B: /home (logical)
P3-C: Swap (logical)
P4: Shared Documents
Now, i know i can fumble around with gparted, copy the image of the Ubuntu partition to the shared documents partition, create the extended (and hence logical partition), move the image back to the created logical partition.
My question: are there any other precautions i should take? Like -- are there config files that are going to look to /dev/sda(old) instead of /dev/sda(new)? and how do i seamlessly change the settings in the OS to look for /dev/sda(new)?
Thanks in advance!
