    QTParted should be able to do what you want.

    fdisk, and cfdisk, are totally different apps. Fdisk is a bit more difficult, but cfdisk isn't that easy if you dont like cli. Try googling a fdisk guide.

    where is the drive?

    hda hdb hdc or hdd

    when you know that go

    cfdisk /dev/hdX

    x as the letter (as root)

    go to free space, then [New], logical, select size, then something else (i cant remember), it should be type "Linux" by default, this is good, but if your using it as storage for windows and linux, you might want to go to [Type] and change it, look for the partition type you want and look at the numbee next to it, e.g. W95 FAT32 is 0b so you press a key and type 0b then enter. Make sure its not marked as boot, (not a * under boot table) then go to [Write] press enter, type "yes" wait till it says "Wrote partition table" go to [Quit].

    whola

    This is just an example, don't follow it word to word
