I tried qtparted last night. With the fs as ext3 I can neither move nor
resize the partition. After removing the journal and converting to ext2,
I can resize the partition but only by making it smaller. I cannot move
the partition (the move option is greyed out).
So the only way I can think to get this done is to shrink the partition
and make a new partition at the end of the drive, move data to that,
delete the old partition and recreate it including the 25GB, move data
back and _hope_ I can enlarge the partition into the free space at the end
of the drive.
Or just think of some other use of the 25GB.
