NP :-)  I don't dispute that PM has had the ability for a long time.  It had 
it in PM6, I know for sure.  However, when I used it I did  have some 
problems.  Since then I have stuck to my resolve to use linux tools to create 
linux partitions and windows tools to create windows  partitions.  I'm 
probably being paranoid, but it just feels safer that way :-)
