I've read in these forums that changing the start position of a partition using GPartEd can takes hours to complete.

I wonder, has anyone used Acronis Disk Director (under Window XP or booting ADD from a CD) to move Ubuntu partitons around. if so, how did it go?

Acreonis and Ubuntu/Linux don't get along well. Gparted is the best partitioner around.

Can you let me know what specific issues ADD caused?

Anyone else run into problems with ADD?

As I will probably need to move partitions forward (G)PartEd can take many hours to complete.

I cannot give you specifics, but I have answered to a lot of people that used Acronis and later had trouble installing Ubuntu.
