Hi Mike

Its hard to understand if you don't send all the details so I assume you
/ (suse 9.3) 40gig
/home (your stuff - docs downloads etc..) ?

Run fdisk -L as root or sudo fdisk -L
and mail me the output.

IF you are in yast install then simply switch to the shell using
keyboard strokes <ctrl><alt><FX> where (X) id the number of the function
IIRC it was F5
