I am working on a school assignment regarding repartitioning a drive with disk druid. Does disk druid even exist for Fedora 16? If not what was the latest version supporting disk druid and where can I download?

You can use Gparted

Install it with yum as shown below

# yum install gparted

Its a graphical tool using libparted with which you can easily repartition your drive.

Give palimpsest - aka "Disk Utility" a try. It comes with fedora by default, and is fairly easy to use.

I think disk druid is run only by anaconda (during the installation).
