Question Ways to Partition?

Ok, here goes
I run RedHat on my laptop, and I am more than completely satisfied with it. Now, I want to install it on my desktop. I have a 15 gig HD and an 80 gig HD. I want the 80 to run XP, mostly for gaming, but also for other memebers of my family, and the 15 (which used to run 98) to run Linux. What partitioning software would be best to set this up?

I like partition magic. If you just plan on installing Linux on the other hard drive then you might not have to partition anything. During install you should just be able to specify installing Linux on the 15 gig hard drive.
