installed xubuntu and have xp there also... the xp partion has the lion's share of hdd space and i want to change that. is it wise to do that post install? will i increase my odds of corrupting the data? will i have to reinstal xubuntu?

Hi m138, you can easily resize your partitions, a reinstall is not necessary. :)

1. Back up all data on Windows and Xubuntu to an external drive (just in case... better safe than sorry!)
2. Defragment your Windows partition
3. Boot with an Ubuntu or Xubuntu Live CD
4. Use the Gparted Partition Editor (in the System menu) to resize the partitions

Good luck!
