You want a partitioner or a utility to free up your partitioned HD space?

I don't know about free ones, but Partition Magic is very good in doing this. A search in google might lead to some useful results

I tried google, but the only free ones were too early for VFAT. I haven't partitioned yet, I don't have a program

You can use fips - it's on Linux installation cds (nearly every distro or version).

My guess is 'yes' (I've not tried myself, but it's there since I remember).
