1) Diskdrake ( The default Mandrake tool, by far superior and easy to use even for people that never came close to a partition before )
2) fdisk ( commandline tool for the more advanced, but still very intuitive )
3) Diskdruid ( The RedHat partition tool )
4) QTParted ( GNU clone of Partition Magic, the tools from SUSE, RedHat and PCLos are based on this )
5) Yast ( the SUSE partition tool )
6) Qparted ( the non-GUI brother of QTParted, I would go for fdisk myself )
