You should wipe as you normally would before you partitioned and also wipe SDEXT.

Back up everything to your PC then
Repartition In recovery 0 swap 0ext that's it then transfer everything back

Sup Evo just wanted to confirm, what about backup on comp and just a hardreset from settings>SD&phone Storage>Factory data reset>erase Sd too. Would that be the same?

It's not the same. The partition will not be changed or removed by this operation.

Thanks that make sense, so we remove from recovery.
Reminds me of fedora and trying to install windows, grub won't let me until I removed /dev/sda1 or /hda0 etc; leaving only the O/S partition and boot from cd again, all this for nothing now since I just went ahead and decided to put the latest Ubuntu ver on it ? Lol!

I got a larger sd card for my Evo and I want to switch to the new one. How should I go about doing this? I would like to copy the currently partitioned card exactly how it is to the new card.

Can this be done or do I have to partition the new card and do a fresh install of my ROM?

Thanks
