I have OSX up and running dual boot with Suse Linux on my Dell D800 laptop, runs like a charm. I set up a 17G partition that OSX is on but the install only created a 6G partition inside the disk partition. Other than iPartition is there a way to resize that 6G to take up the full 17G available?

I don't know Suse but i assume there is a partition manager in there somewhere. If not google one up :)

I've fired up parted and qparted but they only see the type AF partition. My issue is the OSX partition within the disk partition. The disk partition (the one seen by the other OSs) is 17G. The OSX partition, which is "inside" the disk partition, is only 6G. I'm assuming I have to use something Apple-friendly.

Here's the partitions on another box from within linux (there is an sdb with the linux partitions):

Using /dev/sda
(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/sda: 0.000-35304.609 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor Start End Type Filesystem Flags
1 0.031 33000.710 primary type=af
2 33000.710 35299.072 primary linux-swap type=82


This one has ~30GB to take but still only uses 6G because of the partitions within that partition.
