Partition and Boot-manager-editor needed?

Is there a dynamic partition manager out there for Win 7...something like what Partition Manager used to be? Also, I'm thinking of adding a version of Linux to my system and I'm looking for an easy to use boot-manager-editor to use in Win 7?

The Win 7 boot manager is OK - I'm using it on a dual boot Win 7 Ultimate / Linux drive and on a second Win 2008 R2 / Linux drive. In the past I used GRUB as Windows didn't have a "good" boot manager, but happy with Win 7.

As for a partition manager, I use EASEUS Partition Master (free for home use):

EASEUS FREE Partition Manager Software. Free Partition Magic alternative for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and Windows Server 2000/2003/2008. Hard Drive partition software.
