gparted I know. Problem is, I cannot start any Gnome program as root. I try 
tdesu, gksu, etc. I have even tried starting programs from a root shell, but 
it doesn't work. The Gnome sudo gui rejects my password every time, even 
though I am sure of my password. 

The sudo problem is another matter, and I will deal with that separately. 
(Other people besides myself have mentioned this problem, by the way. My TDE 
and KDE programs seem to work fine when run as root.) What I want now is to 
resize my partition. That is my concern at the moment. 

What I need is something that will run from a live CD, so that I can resize my 
root partition without destroying information on my home folder or 
reinstalling my entire system. 

Anyway, I did find the free version (I think) of Parted Magic on SourceForge.

Here are some more recent versions that I found; these are links to a Russian 
university site:

And then there is this page, which looks legit, and offers checksums for 

I am just wondering if there is some reason to avoid Parted Magic (now that I 
have found it) and go with Slacko, as recommended by Nik.
