Partitioning by it's very nature is going to be scary and difficult.
The closest thing I have sean to an easy partitioner is Partition
Magic. This has a nice look and feel to it and bolting fips and
fdisk together behind a PM face would do wonders for SEUL.
I especially like the idea of showing the relative size of partitions
graphically and showing extended partition as a wring around the logical
volume/s makes them understandable to people who didn't "get" it

Another candidate for SEUL default. CDRoms and Floppies should
be automounted to an easily remembered path ( "/A:"="/dev/fd0" and
"/CD"="/dev/cdrom" etc... )
