Hi Guys, I have a G4(AGP) with a 10GB HDD but it only shows 5GB's. I think it's been partitioned some time in it's life with a mac and linux partition. How do i repartition the HDD to 10GB?
QUOTE Thanks

Open Disk Utility (Apps/Utilities).
Select the drive, not the partition, on the left.
Click "Erase" or "Partition" on the right side.
Choose your format(s).
Click "Erase" or "Partition" at the bottom.

Ta-da.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
