Default Partition

Ok, I have 5 Partitions I wan to delete one so I can install Linux Gentoo onto it. I booted up my disc of partition magic and it showed just one big primary partition. So i got Partition Magic for the computer (non-bootup) and i deleted the partition and it had to restart the computer for the changes and then couldn't apply the changes.I just need a free partitioning tool in which I can delete a partition. Any Suggestions?
