Repartitioning with Knoppix

I just got a new laptop – the IBM T42P. It came preinstalled with Windows XP. I want to repartition it and install Linux, but I don’t want to buy Partition Magic. I also don’t want to break the law by stealing Partition Magic. It turns out that the Knoppix Linux distribution can solve my problems.

A fellow by the name of Simon Willison has already tackled this problem.
