i just installed fedora 16 in my laptop.........sharing with windows 7 ultimatum . inorder to increase my linux space i had shrinked my e: drive in windows creating a free unallcated space 25 gb..when i try format this 25 gb of space using fdisk command its giving an error "Inappropriate ioctl for device"....i need to add this space to fedora without reinstalling it.
