    I believe you will need to rebuild the partitions and not "convert" them.

    not the English, the question. it's from nowhere. i suppose you don't
    want to create the new partition and copy the data, right? you want
    some kind of partition "magic" utility.

    well, with the size of disks today, that may be coming soon if not already,
    but it would only do what you can do for yourself if you actually wanted
    to learn linux. --Loren

    ok, so i will try to tell you more clearly.
    1) I want to convert the block size on my partition from 1024 to f.e.
    2048, the partition is very big and has also data on it.
    2) I want to change root partition number from /dev/hda1 to /dev/hda2,
    because fdisk says "Partition table entries are not in disk order"

    this message is showing when first partition is after second partition :-)
    you can get that f.e. by switching the partitions with partition magic.
    i found stupid way to solve this - first the
    partitions become removed and next recreated witch some partition
    recovery utility.
    after that the order on my hd was good.
    i asked you because i wanted to find more "professional" solution.
