Partitioning Software

Is there a free software out there for resizing partitions? Either Linux or other Windows. I have a laptop that I don't want to reformat (i need to leave win2k intact). But it is currently taking up the entire drive.

I prefer parted fo partitioning. It's command line. I think qtparted is a GUI for it if you don't want command line programs. In windows there's partition magic (probably a trial version or something)

Don't forget that knoppix includes it.

Ive saved my ass a few times by having the partition tool available on a bootable cd.

It's also included on SystemRescueCd as well as a few other handy tools.
