The only program I know of is called fips when dealing with partitions/filesystems with data on them to split them up safely to create new one's, etc.

Try doing a google search on it, can't remember link off top of my head.

No, you got wrong one.. its actually called Fips, more of a Debian tool.. Here is a hit I got off a google search.. http://www.linux.com/howtos/PLIP-Install-HOWTO-12.shtml
