Question resizing partitions in linux

Hi everyone

I was wondering if somebody could recommend something (pref. available as an rpm) for resizing paritions in Linux, apart from GNU Parted. It's my root partition that needs resizing, so I guess it'll need to run from a boot disk unless it does it really cleverly.

You could use the suite from DriveWorks from a floppy drive in DOS. It's all on the disk and works on Linux partitions. They may have changed the name of the product though. It's great value compared to Partition Magic which is almost twice as expensive.
