What started out as an experiment has got me SO hooked on Fedora. Touching story, really. However, now I have noticed that my ever-expanding interests do not fit on the tiny partition I had initially designated for Fedora. So, my question is: how can I resize partitions (relatively) safely? I already have a larger partition with space to spare; I would like to avoid using Partition Magic as much as possible, but if it's the only option, what the hey... I may still not be experienced enough to use a command-line environment, especially when dealing with such...important things. But, anythng will do, as long as the risks are fairly low.
Once I have done the resizing, I would like to move from root to a regular user, while preserving my environment as much as possible. Would copying all the contents of the /root directory to /home/user suffice?
Many thanks in advance for the knowledgeable answers to my many and foolish questions,
