    What you should do is if you have a spare hard drive.
    Create and resize ntfs and reiserfs partitions, find out how well the versions that you have work.
    As long as you have the latest Slax ad Knoppix, you should be fine.
    How to know if you are a geek.

    I have an external drive 120GB but is formatted as Fat and I have the latest versions of Slax and Knoppix.

    As long as Slax and Knoppix come with qtparted, or with qtparted installable, qtparted should work as stated. I've been using it for some time, now, resizing any type of partition, except for LVM--qtparted doesn't support logical volumes yet. In any case, the safest option, IMHO, would be to go for the SRCD http://www.sysresccd.org/ and run_qtparted from that. Good luck in any case.

    I know it works but does it come with the features http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/features.en.html or plugins when installed or are they extra.

    It doesn't need plugins, per se, but it needs certain programs--qtparted is just a gui that brings all of them together. You should be able to get the programs through whichever package manager you are using. The qtparted website you gave has links to anything extra you may need to run the program. System Rescue CD has all those extras installed on its livecd, though. Regards.

    If it didn't have the features you mentioned it probably wouldn't work.
    Therefore it has those features.

    If your livecd does what you need it to do, then it has the features that you need.
