I am on redhat 9 with dual boot (Win XP). I want to add one full partition(empty) to another partition. So I have /share of 20GB which i am not using. So I want to add that to /home partition.

In this process I used parted and removed that /share with minor number 6. Now i am not able to find where that memory is gone and not able to resize /home. Here I am giving some info about the sizes I found after I removed the /share.

Using parted:

(parted) rm 6
(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-76293.945 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031  20002.807  primary   ntfs        boot
2      20002.808  30004.211  primary   ext3
3      30004.211  32004.492  primary   linux-swap
4      32004.492  76293.061  extended              lba
5      51003.268  76293.061  logical   ext3

After removing the /share:

address@hidden root]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9726 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

  Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1      2550  20482843+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2          2551      3825  10241437+  83  Linux
/dev/hda3          3826      4080   2048287+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda4          4081      9726  45351495    f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5          6503      9726  25896748+  83  Linux
address@hidden root]#

I din't understand what is that /dev/hda5 4081 9726 45351495 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA) mean really.

Any suggestions regarding this are appriciated.

Thanks in advance.
