GNU Parted is the way to go now, IMHO. You can download a self-booting
floppy image from the Gnu site or a suitable mirror.

Fips apparently hasn't been updated in 6 years, while Parted is updated
regularly. Also, Parted doesn't require you to run a defragger first - it
can move data around the disk on its own.
