Repartitioning scsi drive in Nextstep

Need to change the partitions on a SCSI drive with Nextstep.

df shows

filesystem kbytes used avail cap mounted on

/dev/sd0a 2051824 231924 13% /
/dev/sd0b 998332 9 0% /Vol2
/dev/sd0c 998332 9 0% /Vol3
/dev/sd0d 998332 9 0% /Vol4
/dev/sd0e 998332 9 0% /Vol5
/dev/sd0f 998332 9 0% /Vol6
/dev/sd0g 998332 9 0% /Vol7
/private/vm/swapfile 2051824 231924 13% /private/vm/swapfile.front

I would like to a: delete partition g and add the space to partition f

or b: make g smaller and give this space to f.

I would also like to do this without disturbing the other partitions if possible.

I'm very new to this so please help in words of one syllable!

There seems to be some good resources out there. I remember thinking how cool the NextStep was when we recieved them at my community college. It was nice to program under a real OS instead of being tied to Borland C++.

Hi Kieth, I gave that link a try but the website doesn't appear to be at that address anymore. I also tried to browse to but also dead link. Any ideas?

Not sure what has happened to the site. I went back through my cache, but can't view it. I wanted to make sure that I hadn't been viewing a google cache link or some such. Sorry,
