For FAT32, Reiser, EXT: Parted, and if you want, a "Partition Magic" like interface, QTparted (very nice).

For NTFS, Partition Magic, or possibly the Mandrake 9.1 install disc (cd 1).

I use Mandrake for resizing the partitions, and it works pretty good.

partition magic for pretty much everything, otherwise I use whatever is native on the install disk of the distro I am using

And PAUD, the Version of parted, which is able to deal with reiserfs!
