You cannot combine hda1 with hda3 unless you change them to lvm. One way
you can recover the space used is to re-partition/format. Of course you
will need to backup and restore your data.

Another way is to use other partitions within your running system such
as /usr /opt /home partitions. These come from the space currently being
used by hda3.

The most efficient way will be to re-partition/format and create
swap,/,/home. This will allow the maximum usage of your drive.

Hi Ken. I'm somewhat confused now. I want to do what's best. Could You tell me bit more on how to
do the last part of Your 2 last lines ?.
