    I was curious what partitioning software is out there. The only one I have used in the past is Partition Magic Pro. I thought it was good piece of software for what it could do. I need something that can create a linux partition.


    For some stupid ass reason, Fedora won't auto partition my drive. Now it seems like I will have to go and manually create it using some kind of software and go from there.

    I was looking for one... but it looks doubtful.



    This really pisses me off... I have installed Red Hat (which Fedora is based off of kind-of) and I never had a problem. Now this one time it won't auto partition.

    Fedora is garbage. SuSE will do what you want just fine, as will Ubuntu.

    BUHAHAHAHAH

    SuSE is one of the nicest, user friendly distro's out there. It's stable, and though is RPM based, still friendly to work with. YaST2 does an excellent job in this. Obviously you're biased opinions have come into play again. :mamoru:

    For Linux, it comes down to personal preference, albeit some distro's do other things better as they specalize it in. (SuSE for Novell, Stomrix (back when they were around), for Firewalling)

    I've used Partition Magic 8.0 several times to partition my drives for RHL...
