Is there a way I can re-allocate some more disk Space for Ubuntu without reformatting my HD?

You can use a tool called "gparted" to resize partitions in Ubuntu.
To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!

What all is on your hard drive right now? If Windows is on there, is Ubuntu installed along side it, or is it a WUBI install? Yes, Gparted is a very easy to use GUI program - one point about Gparted, you will need to run it from a live cd to make partitioning changes.

I couldn't get it too repartition...I have a third hard drive installed, but not plugged in. I will replace it and make it the sole OS when I plug in. How can I export all of my favorites with 11.04 or whatever the new Ubuntu is.

Good system...this Ubuntu. Who needs Windows? I have not been in there in weeks.

Hi,
To save / sync/ backup Favourites across o/s and browsers have a look at Xmarks (freeware). I use it across XP, Vista and Ubuntu with IE, Firefox and Chromium.

Hope this helps?

Richard
