Question Partition Magic


Hey folks,

Does the linux community have an alternative for Partion Magic? I mainly use fdisk (linux version ofcourse) but it is not able to resize partitions and stuff like that. P.M. can just make a que of actions to execute and when you're finished altering your disk layout do everything on its own while you're sleeping/eating/ or whatever.

diskdrake from Mandrake is the closest I've seen. I don't know how to make it work outside of Mandrake install. Still, mandrake cd#1 is easy enough to aquire. I just boot from it, then cancel the installation after I'm done partitioning. (Err, unless, of course, you want Mandrake, then you just continue.)

In my research I have come across a tool called Parted that you may want to check out.

I found it!!! Talk about asking the neighbor about your wife's friend's car. Anyway, it was at mandrake the whole time, ha ha.

Here's the link http://www.linux-mandrake.com/diskdrake/

Go to the bottom of the page, it's like the last entry
