Linux partitions, cont.

I mentioned I was having difficulty the other day expanding a Linux partition. Apparently there was an error with the file system before the resize, and it was compounded by parted expanding the partition. I was able, however, to install a fresh OS and use the reiserfs fsck (forget the exact BIN name now) to recover the partition…luckily the files I really cared about (the virtual machines) were easily identifiable and I was able to recover them. What a pain, though.
