Hi.

I have SuSE 9.2 on one partition, and 9.1 on another partition.
I need some more space now. 9.2 is on the first partition, and 9.1 on the last one.
Is it possible to delete the 9.1 and use the space here for 9.2 also ?.

Short answer is yes. Things to consider are: boot loader
configuration, fstab settings, having a /home directory in each
install. I assume you are using one swap partition.


Thanks for a fast reply Mike. Can you tell me more about the things to consider ?.

I have a /home each place. What to take care of here ?.

/etc/fstab for 9.2
