What are people using to split NTFS partitions? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi folks, Oh how I miss the good old days of FIPS and splitting Windows FAT partitions in a single fell swoop. Now I have to go buy commercial software to do it ... which is of course antithetical to the whole nature of Linxu IMHO. I'm on the search for something better, in particular for our students who want to install Linux for the first time and use our computer music software. I can't expect each students to shell out $60 for things like Partition Magic. Anyone? Thanks, DT -- Technical Director - Virginia Center for Computer Music http://www.virginia.edu/music/vccm.html...

    Hi folks,

    Oh how I miss the good old days of FIPS and splitting Windows FAT
    partitions in a single fell swoop. Now I have to go buy commercial
    software to do it ... which is of course antithetical to the whole
    nature of Linxu IMHO. I'm on the search for something better, in
    particular for our students who want to install Linux for the first time
    and use our computer music software.

    I can't expect each students to shell out $60 for things like Partition
    Magic.

    Anyone?

    Thanks,

    I don't know which version of Windows you are asking about. I recently
    got a Compaq with Windows XP on it, and I installed SuSe Linux 9. Linux
    cannot partition an NTFS formatted disk. For XP, you have to use the
    Windows partitioner to create a "data partition" which can then be used
    by Linux. In the case of my Compaq, this utility came on what is called
    the Compaq Recovery Tools CD. This is a CD I had to create myself
    (CD-R) from a special recovery partition that comes installed in the
    Compaq hard disk.

    To avoid repartitioning, how about a "loopback" linux. KNOPPIX, Mandrake
    Live, etc. These systems aren't too hard to create-- I did one based on
