    This is a quote from a friend of mine, who is a retired Linux pro.

    "Mandrake has the best The Very Best partitioning/resizing manager in
    the universe. I use the Mandrake CD to prepartition Windows machines,
    FreeBSD machines, OpenBSD machines etc etc. I just do a
    ctrl-alt-backspace to get out of the install once the partitioning has
    been committed and written to disk. I prepared 50 machines at the
    university for BSD installs using the partitioning manager on the
    Mandrake CD."

    I hope this helps. I know it to be true too, as I have Mandrake 8.2 on
    my second drive, and it partitioned flawslessly.
