Linux Laptop Rescue with Knoppix

I always carry a Knoppix CD and DVD with me. At the installfests, I have 
found that QTParted tends to work better than every other partitioner I 
have used including Partition Magic. At the last installfest we had a guy 
with Windows XP with plenty of space. The SuSE partitioner based on GNU 
Parted failed. Windows was able to recover nicely and also I ran the 
compression utility. Then, I decided to run QTParted, and it repartitioned 
the system perfectly. After partitioning, we ran XP again just to make sure 
it would boot, and chkdsk found no errors. After installation, we had no 
problems booting into XP.
