    What's a Good Free Partitioner?


    I think I have a pretty clear understanding of what I need to do, but I'm too lazy to buy anything and besides that would defeat the purpose of Linux being free. Because I'm only going to use it once, my idea of "good" is simple

    - It has to have a GUI
    - It cant require a floppy drive

    Other than that, I really don't care.

    So thanks for your help,

    ~JK

    "qtparted" can be installed on linux, and exists on linux livecd/livedvds like knoppix

    Problem: System Rescue CD has some stupid think called "ranish" despite its claims to have QtParted. Ranish refuses to cooperate with my system insisting that it doesn't work with my file system and is incredibly complex and I'm deathly afraid of it screwing my system.

    Nope, just Ranish, DPOS.

    I thought about using the QtParted on Knoppix, but I can't figure out how to download it, there's like 40 different files and I don't know the right one. Anyone know how to do it?
