+1 on qtparted, try to find a "live" plus install ISO for your linux distro
of choice, and qtparted is probably already on it. Like the others,
currently have Vista/Kubuntu and as long as Vista is installed first
(k)ubuntu worked pretty much right out of the box for me.

I do like Vista too and have just recently started using it as a primary OS,
and instead of partitioning disks am going to use VMware:
http://www.vmware.com/ for my Linux fix.
