    Post whatever displays when you issue the terminal commands below:

    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    sudo blkid
    Also, Do post your /etc/fstab file:

    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Re: cant access other drives and partitions

    To merge partitions, either backup all data from all the partitions you want to merge, delete them, make a new one from the space created, and restore the files, or move the data from the partitions you want to merge onto the partition with it's start point in the desired position, delete the now empty partitions, and resize the one with all your data to fill the empty space. (Defragment your drive first, though I am not sure how you do it with ext3 file systems.)
    As for the swap partitions, just delete them both and make a new one; they do not hold permanent data.

    Make sure you unmount the partition first by right clicking on it and selecting "Unmount" (or swapoff, for swap partitions). Also note that this will make any partitions with operating systems unbootable.
