So I've decided to start the LFS program and am stuck already.  I recently 
installed Suse on my machine.  It created 3 physical partitions.  /boot, 
swap, and /.  I want to resize my / partition so that I can create a new 
partition for LFS.  The book says to simply read the man pages for cfdisk 
and fdisk.  I have read them multiple times.  I don't understand how I can 
resize my partition.  I have umounted it and tried it.  I have tried parted, 
fdisk, cfdisk, and suse's utility.  I do have data on this partition that 
I'd like to preserve.  It is the Reiser FS.
