As for precautions, backup all your data…twice. – fideli Nov 18 '10 at 3:21

LVM is king...if you eventually need to resize/add to partitions LVM is built for this...just a thought. lvresize lets you change partition sizes. If you want something to resize a partition regardless of format, than partition tools are what you are looking for, but if you want the BEST plan...use LVM to manage your partitions and you can add, change, resize at will. Just my's a loaded question
