    Gparted works pretty well for this.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Search Google for Gparted. There should be a sourceforge link to it near the top. Download it and burn the .iso to a blank disc. It comes as a LiveCD. Once you boot it up it's pretty self-explanatory.

    You can do using
    Code:
    fdisk
    its a command utility works super fast.

    Can you provide us output of

    fdisk -l

    I can tell you exact commands to create a new partition.
