I thought GParted live was based around parted.
Either way, having the same name does not mean they have the same
capabilities or the same user interface. But no, I don't think there
has been a gpart program on the Linux utility disks I use. For
partitioning, they usually have two or three menu-based programs and

Okay. Can you point me to a man page or utility distribution with that
version of gpart for Linux? The man pages I've found seem to be for a
very old utility that reconstructs partition tables.

True. On the other hand, my experience is that FreeBSD generally
handles those things in a more useful way. And I don't see the point in
grabbing a Linux utility disk when FreeBSD is already running and has
the tools for the job.
