    I've used QTParted and I had no problems with it, I have never used su, so I can't really comment on it.

    The msot recent version of qtparted (assuming the proper kernel support is also included on your system), is capable of resizing NTFS partitions and quite a few other types as well. It has the look and feel that somewhat resembles Partition Magic, but it's free, it's current, and it works well. I have a copy of qtparted on the freely downloadable SimplyMEPIS; you can get it on Knoppix and several other freely downloadable systesm as well.

    I recommend it.

    The only su I know of is the UNIX/Linux Switch User (su) command. If there is a disk partition management program by that name, it's news to me, and it has a poorly chosen name, in my opinion, considering that the UNIX su command has been around for thirty years or so!

    I have Suse installed but can I resize it with the SuSE partitioner when reinstalling it.
