parted does work.

However, for people that do not want to use parted, there is always 
gparted or qtparted.

Just be sure that you do not use parted/qtparted/gparted from your 
installed system!!!!

You need to always use it from a Linux Boot-CD, instead.

Kind regards

I generally know that parted usage is not dependant on where your Linux 
runs. Instead it depends on the state of the partition(s) that is to be 
modified. I just gave this oversimplified advice to get to something 
that works everywehere, anytime.
