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
and it's gui-enabled frontend gparted

There's a gparted live cd,
which is a bootable linux cd which takes you straight to the gparted gui.

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.
