While installing Debian, there was this ultra cool, easy to use partition tool. One can set up LVMs, encrypted disks, encrypted LVMs and whatnot.

Can I get this tool back, without putting in a installation disk? Or is there a similar tool, that works on console?

The graphics don't have to be pretty, they weren't while installing, but a bit more comfort than hacking away on console would be nice.

I believe that the Debian installer uses partman. You could also use fdisk(command-line) or cfdisk(console gui).
