What a wonderful world of Con VMware Fusion

I like using my MacBook Pro 17 inch laptop. I love running Windows 7 on it and switching to Mac applications and the wonderful BSD terminal for work on my Linux servers. Today I fixed an annoying problem on my virtual machine running Windows 7. I needed to resize my 40GB virtual disk and make it larger. I used this tutorial to get it working.

What I used in this process is a bit of software that I had heard of but never used, Gparted. Gparted is a Linux application and you can boot the ISO file and repartition your disk space.  I did it and it worked like a charm.
