I read in a forum that "This ability to non-destuctively repartition a disk doesn't come from nowhere. It was added to the 10.4.6 and is provided by the command:

hdutil resizeVolume"

Anyone any ideas? I wanted to parition my hard drive (already have it partitioned once for BootCamp) and was woundering if it was realy possible to partition non-destructivly without using bootcamp...

Yes, it's possible using the command line, that's what Boot Camp does behind the scenes. I've never done it though.

Wow, not that I need to repartition any of my HDs, but nice behind-the-scenes add to OS X. I like that they put it into Darwin (I guess?) and didn't just make it available via Bootcamp for Intel Macs.... :)
