Laptop questions

Two laptop questions.

1) I need a power adapter for my car. Does this look good? Anybody know of better/cheaper ones? This looks neat, but I understand that DC --> AC inverters aren't terribly efficient. Would it be safe to use one for a prolonged period of time while the car is running? I assume the alternator would keep up. Who knows electrical stuff?

2) Anybody have a copy of Partition Magic I could borrow? I need to resize my laptop's Win2K NTFS partition down so I could make space for Linux. I think I'm going to make a big ext2 partition for mp3s so I could use Explore2fs to access them from Windows, then the rest will be ReiserFS.

Update: DC to AC to DC is stupid. Getting the one Sherm suggested at Office Depot. And Partition Magic I can get free from school.
