Not that I know of, that's just disk druid to create the drives before installing during the install..

Your going to want to read up on the docs for lvm and its related commands it uses for setting up or expanding partitions, etc.

note that i dont have a linux machine in front of me because im on vacation, try going to a terminal and typing in

/usr/bin/system-config-

and then press tab 2 times, try lookin in any of those for anything interesting, like "partitions" or "harddrive"

if not, you might be up to using "fdisk /dev/hda"

Hmm I have also run into a problem where in by I was in the need to find a solution to resizing a partition. I have found that there is a tool called parted, which does what you are requesting, I cannot vouch for it though as I haven't had the nerve to use it yet. Please note the person who made reference to the tool also noted that you should backup! I am un aware of any tools which are available in FC3 which does what you are requesting, at a guess I would say no, as it is rather a risky proceedure.

I hope you do know it's rather hard to resize its default ext3 partitions.
I don't think parted can do this and I highly doubt any graphical tool can.

you might need partition magic for windows

yea i know, its windows

but it has a dos version, if that makes you feel any better, and its bootable without windows

but it does sometimes screw up /boot partitions, which isnt good
