RE: Free partitioning software ?

It sounds like the original poster needs to partition a disk that
already has data on it, and if I'm not mistaken, the Win2k disk manager
tool would probably lose everything on it. There might be a workaround,
but it'd be safer to use a tool that is set up for this sort of thing
from the start (aka Partition Manager, but free).

On the other hand, if you did it yourself on your 80g disk and it had
data and it survived, it would be interesting to hear about it. That
would be good news.

If you are using win2k, you can use its own disk manager to make
partitiona, format etc. And then run Linux installation. It worked well
for me, even for my 80G HD.
