My question, or rather issue, is in the extent of http://askubuntu.com/questions/40537...t520502_405371 in which I wanted to grow my Linux (ext4) partition. The partition /dev/sda6 was in the way of doing this and since it contained bios_grub I didn't touch it until someone with expert knowledge could help me.

**All seemed well**
