"In spite of its mostly spartan interface, fdisk is actually
a very powerful, easy-to-use tool. To run fdisk, su to root
and run "fdisk ", or perhaps (if /sbin is not in your path)
"/sbin/fdisk " - where is something like /dev/hda or /dev/sda, the
device we will be partitioning. For a good primer on partitions and

"For my personal example, I've got Linux on my second IDE hard
drive, so I'm going to be using /dev/hdb for my example. Remember
to change it where appropriate."
