Every Linux distribution has a such tool, it's name is FIPS. "..FIPS is a program designed to split an existing DOS partition without deleting
the data on it..."

I use "FIPS".

It is supplied by most linux distributions, but is also available for FREE to download here:
http://www.igd.fhg.de/~aschaefe/fips/

FIPS 2.0 is a totally free and royalty free program, and supports FAT16 and FAT32 file systems.  It works wonderfully for resizing, creating, or deleting partitions.  I personally use it and have altered my FAT32 partitions several times with it.

whistlerMe:

Welcome to Experts Exchange!  The method generally used in this EE Topic Area is to make comments in a question, and not propose answers, even if you are 100% sure that your solution is the only workable answer.  By posting your solution as an "Answer", it moves the question into the "Locked Questions" listing on the page, which fewer Experts look at, which therefore reduces the chance that the Questioner will get a fast solution to their problem.

Glad to have you here to share your knowledge!

"a website to change the partition"

I have no idea what these other people are going on about; I've never seen a Java script that can resize partitions.

This is a case of two new users:  This was the first question asked by "wynsberghe" so he/she certainly didn't know how to deal with someone stealing the answer via the 'answer' instead of 'comment' trick.
