    As we know, resize partition can not be supported by earlier built-in disk partition management in Windows XP, 2000, 2003. Luckily, Partition Assistant has the functions which the Windows “Disk Manager” doesn't have.

    Shouldn't the command to launch gparted be gksu gparted instead of sudo gparted?
