Dependingo on the distro, you'll have several optons at install.

But after that, all you have is fdisk and its variants. (cfdisk is the best for newbies, IMHO).

You can also use commercial apps, like partition magic, I think.

HTH,

Yes, it has its' own. And it's really easy to use.

I am running Drake 8.2 myself and, yes, it has a very easy to use partition program that you can use during the install. Just choose the option to customize your partitions. You can set up Linux as well as FAT (Windows) partitions in it.
