I have a dual boot desktop PC, running Linux and Win2k Pro, and I
already had to move/resize my partitions some 3 or 4 times. I've used
Partition Magic 6, it understands Linux ext2fs and swap partitions, as
well as Win2k partitions that aren't part of any "dynamic disk".
I had absolutely no problems on any of those runs.

There's gnu parted (google's your friend), but the docs do not inspire a
lot of confidence... seems like a still very young product.

Whatever software you'll end up using, you *must* be prepared to
reformat and reinstall everything on your machine. Any other expectation
will very probably lead to grief.
