Does anyone know of any Mac OSX apps that allow you to create and/or resize partitions on the fly like Partition Magic or Partition Wizard for Windows?

Since Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Disk Utility can do that, if there is enough free space and no files in the sectors you want to use for another partition.

Disk Utility -- it's in your utilities folder, but it does this only with Mac Formatted disks. I do not believe it will work for FAT or NTFS file systems.

See? This is what happens when tech support gives you the wrong info. I had asked an Apple tech (on the phone) whether it was possible to do this and he simply said "No". It surprised me since Windows can do it. I thought OSX would be able to do it also.

EDIT: thank you!!!
