where is Disk Druid?

Can I use Disk Druid utility after the post installation?
Is there any command to open Disk Druid?

I want to see the same Graphical interface while I was installing Red Hat Linux.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Get the gparted livecd; it's a Partition Magic clone and much better than Disk Druid IMHO:

Other than that, you could probably boot off of the RH install CD-1 and get to Disk Druid that way.

Yes. Boot from CD and Gparted will setup a light desktop environment with a minimal panel and its own graphical user interface.

I think Disk Druid is the GUI partitioning tool for the Red Hat family and you may have a different one if you use a different distro. For example Yast is used by Suse, Hard Drake the one for Mandrake/Mandravia whereas QTparted will be the one favoured by the Debian family.

Gparted 3.3 is probably the most up to date and most powerful of the Linux partitioning tools as it can resize/move partitions for MS systems too. It works as a Live CD and you have the standard terminal mode plus the main GUI gparted program.
