It's available from rpmforge repository:
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
: moving and copying of partitions. Also several
: 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:
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.
In theory, theory and practice are the same;
in practice they are not.
