Is it possible to do partition operations on a drive from a computer other than where it was originally installed?

Let me update this a bit. After struggling with this I finally figured out that I could only do one task at a time and not queue several to complete. I did a move on a volume and it completed just fine and I could install the drive back into my neighbor's laptop okay. I then was able to add another volume to the majority of unallocated space to this new 1tb drive so he could store more songs and albums for his iTunes setup. He is one happy camper and so am I after spending hours on this.
