PNP hardware and dual boot machine.
1) Another tool for disk partition management is
parted - The GNU Parted disk partition resizing program.
I am not sure how GUI it is.
2) I believe that for a MS-Win and Linux dual boot machine you might want to
look at the isapnptools deb. Suppose to let you use your PNP hardware without
interfering MS-Win hardware management when it is booted. There is also a new
kernel option for PNP which I have not explored. Any hints?
