Thanks. I forgot about the nasty old fstab - successfully tried real hard to forget it! :)
Thanks again,

Hi all,
  Here is the issue & I am a relative newbie:
   I have a older Linux server with two partitions: /mammdata and
/rgdata.  The latter partition is no longer needed as the storage
requirements exploded and it was all moved to a NAS.  /mammdata is
almost full.  Will this scenario work:

1.  Back up all data on /mammdata (this is a SMB share)
2.  fdisk and delete the partitions /mammdata and /rgdata1
3.  create a new partition to use all the space no longer used by the
two deleted partitions
4.  mkfs.ext3 -jvL pt-data
You'll probably need a reboot here. And DON"T forget to fix /etc/fstab
before the reboot.
5.  restore the backed up data from originally on /mammdata

Thanks for you input,
