I'm trying to repartition my "120 gig"(closer to 110) laptop harddrive in order to dual boot Fedora Core 5. So far I've tried qtparted with Knoppix, which gave me a No Implementation error, and a not-so-legit copy of partition magic 8.0, which didn't do anything. I've tried to get GParted, but sourceforge doesn't want to load for me, and I don't think it'll be much more successful than qtparted. I have all of my files backed up on an external drive, and I have redundant copies of my critical data(college essays).

So, my question is, what would be the best(and cheapest) way to get my system to dual boot?

Should I format, create 2 partitions, and reinstall windows, then install FC5.

Should I try GParted?

Is there another method I am overlooking?

Gparted is your best bet. Sourceforge is always backed up on the weekends. The really best idea that I could give you is just reformat the whole drive and only install linux.
