Media Server, partman, Gparted, LVM partitioning

I used the Partman partition manager that is part of
the Ubuntu Installation Live CD. Partman is
outstanding (better than Gparted). Why it is only
available as part of the install Live CD is beyond me.

I use the Live CD as if I were going to install a new
system, then abort just after partitioning the drives.
No changes occur to my existing system (except the
partitioning, of course.)
