    Partition utility recommended for unix and Linux

    At work I could not use Hirenís Boot CD:

    http://homepage.ntlworld.com/hiren.thanki/bootcd.html

    to display Solaris partition for SunFire V20Z server ,,,I had to use Mandrake 10 utility to do that,,,,,

    What is the recommended partition utility, when we want to deal with these two OSs (Linux, and Unix).

    I prefer to use cfdisk. I heard somewhere that there's a good reason to use this in preference to fdisk, but I might have been dreaming.

    fdisk for basic things (creating/deleting partitions and showing partitions)

    gparted for moving/resizing partitions

    fdisk, it saved my ass when PartitionMagic made my Windows partition type 17. Sure GUI partitioners are pretty and easy to use, but when you need power the CLI is the way to go.
    Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.
