First off all this is probably a noob question, but I need some insight regarding this matter.

I recently did a fresh installation of MS Windows 2003 46 bits R2 on an IBM xSeries server. After the setup, I needed to create a new disk partition, so I used Acronis Disk Manager running of a boot disk to do this.
The thing is, that the Acronis hangs during the 'Analysing Disk' phase - I waited about 40 minutes before giving up. I decided the to risk using Partition Magic, running of a boot disk - This one hanged at 19 % of the disk resizing phase, and resulted in frying the file system allocation table. I had to reinstall the OS - I did the disk partitioning during the Windows installation.

My questions are:
- What can explain this behaviour of the partition software execution ?
- Is there a better software to do these tasks?

I really don't want to reinstall the OS every time I need to resize a disk or create or delete partitions.

I appreciate any help you can give me.
