disk partitioning

I just installed redhat 7.2 . Is there anyway to partition the drive in linux after the install. I used the disk druid during the install and created a root partition but did not create a swap partition. I now want a swap partition but cant figure out how to.

Have you tried running DiskDruid again? I don't run RH anymore (going to give Debian another try), and I can't remember if you can run DiskDruid at run time (although you should be able to). If not, then you could try cfdisk. It's just as powerful as fdisk, but looks nicer and is easier to use. Creating a SWAP partition shouldn't be a problem so long as you have the free space. If you don't, you'll have to resize one of your other partitions, and I'm affraid I don't know how to do that.
