 System Partition Logic - freeware hard disk partition tool
I created a floppy boot disk with the Partition Logic disk image. When I booted it I was greeted with a slick looking GUI and tons of options. I didn't have the time or need to test it out thoroughly but it sure looks like I've got a great tool for my hard drive the next time I need to slice it up into partitions. If you are not familiar with hard disk partitions, check out for older PC's and Microsoft for WinXP.

Quote from the website
Partition Logic is a free hard disk partitioning and data management tool.  It can create, delete, format, and move partitions and modify their attributes.  It can copy entire hard disks from one to another.
Partition Logic is free software, based on the Visopsys operating system.  It boots from a CD or floppy disk and runs as a standalone system, independent of your regular operating system.  It is intended to become a free alternative to such commercial programs as Partition Magic, Drive Image, and Norton Ghost...
A bootable .iso CD image file includes the full Partition Logic distribution, including source code.  You can burn the ISO file to a CD using your favourite burning application.  A bootable floppy disk .img file includes a minimal distribution, and should be written directly to a 1.44 Mb floppy disk.  [ Windows users will need a program such as RawWrite (203K) to create the disk.  Linux/UNIX users can use the built-in 'cat' or 'dd' commands ]
