The most basic command-line is fdisk. If you prefer some GUI, then the best known are gparted for Gnome or qtparted for KDE.

Most distros also offer a GUI partitioning tool during install.

cfdisk is a little easier to use than fdisk. It's reminiscent of DOS fdisk.

Two posts by the OP - both look like they've been cut-and-pasted from homework.
