Which one?

You can use tools like ADSI Edit or ldp.exe.  You just need to connect to the correct DN.  For example to connect the DomainDNSZones application partition you would use something like  DC=DomainDNSZones,DC=domain,DC=com.

However, using ntdsutil does help to get a list of the partitions if you don't know them.  One thing though, for 2008 R2, instead of typing "domain management" type "partition management".
