"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 filesystems, go see the NHF on them by 7DS: http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel/filesys/filesysintro.html"
"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."
