NEEDED: Good Console front-end to parted


I need to re-size some partitions, and as I know very little about drive geometry (and, according to the parted docs, you can badly screw things up if you don't know what you are doing) I'd like a front end to do the leg-work for me.

I'd use QTparted, but that's a little hard with no X server installed (It's a web + samba server) I'm thinking something ncurses based. Any Reccomendations?

Your partitions need to be un-mounted anyway, so why not boot up with a rescue cd and run qtparted from it?

Because the machine is 200 Mhz with a 2 MB graphics card and a 2x CDROM.
(It's an ultra-low end fileserver)
