Hi Johan.

It's available from rpmforge repository:

Installed Packages
Name       : gparted
Arch       : i386
Version    : 0.4.8
Release    : 4.el5.rf
Size       : 3.4 M
Repo       : installed
Summary    : Gnome Partition Editor
URL        : http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
License    : GPLv2+
Description: GParted stands for Gnome Partition Editor and 
is a graphical frontend
            : to libparted. Among other features it supports 
creating, resizing,
            : moving and copying of partitions. Also several 
(optional) filesystem
            : tools provide support for filesystems not 
included in libparted.
            : These optional packages will be detected at 
runtime and don't require
            : a rebuild of GParted

As well as installing it from the above, I'd recommend 
getting the live CD from the Gparted website:

http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php

As this is handy for preparing your hard drive, before doing 
a fresh installation of Linux. Some things are not possible 
when using Gparted from a working Linux installation.

As the Gparted CD runs from memory, you can do anything you 
want to any partition using this.

Kind Regards,

Keith Roberts
