creating partitions

I'd like to do a clean install of mandrake and also create some partitions for other distros. Can anyone tell me the simplest way to do it? I've looked at parted but was hoping I could use cfdisk ( or similar) during the install of mandrake. Mandrake is all I've got on my hard disk at the moment which is 80gb. I'd like to get 4 partitions of 20gb each if possible.

You can always use a LiveCD, but Mandrake's installation partitioner has all you need and is quite easy to use.
