  1. I also have something similar to do; repartitioning [the laptop] is already done (too bad GParted is very limited in what regards moving partitions), next comes:

    1. dumping stuff from the desktop (summing up to 10GB) and the external disk (about 20GB) to folders in the laptop,
    2. organize all that stuff (the 20GB from the external disk are the easist, I think — it’s basically MP3’s which are already organized by albums),
    3. repartition the external disk to bear a whole 40GB partition,
    4. backup the whole (already organized) information to the external disk (which will permanently serve that purpose), and
    5. upgrade the desktop to Ubuntu Dapper (it still has Breezy).

    O, the life!… -_-
