gparted vs partition magic

Guess Partition magic is familiar to most folks around.

However, I wanted an Free Open Source solution addressing the same purpose.

My searches have led me to parted

Also, gparted is available on the "SystemRescueCd" liveCD distribution.

Also, here's a good link on using gparted to partition hard drives on Windows Vista preinstalled laptops.

And the book is available as soft copy under GPL

Thanks again to my friend Haynes for pointing me to this.
