Re: partition manager...

You could get into the standard sequence of installing linux...

1. Get a linux Distribution, preferrably RH, or atleast i started there..
2. Its got docs(i cud mail em over outside the list) that you "should" read
before proceeding.
3. if you have any one of the partitions completely empty, probably you can
go on to step 5.
4. Use FIPS(also on the RH CD), to split a partition into two...
5. boot using the Cd, and u can select which partition to install to, during
6. there are a lot of other things to be looked at like booting options  -
LILO/loadlin, Swap space reqd..etc... so i suggest that you do read the docs

nd.. i have RH 7.0, if you arent able to find anything else..
