You can use fdisk.
See the Partition HOWTO for detailed information.

Interested in trying Linux? Well you came to comp.os.linux.advocacy

If I had made a linux file system on external USB2.0 drive then download
the latest version of the Linux installation image files on it for friend's
brand new machine Linux installtion, is there a specific boot floppy disk
with USB driver built in for external USB drive installation.
I knew the network boot disk can allow to do that installation on the local
area network using the mounting way. But if this brand new machine is just a
stand alone machine. If there is a way to do the installation using USB
drive, then I can avoid the tedious buring CD image process and...Toshiba 2500CDS hard drive install and/or linux install help

I'm considering getting an external drive for my laptop (dual boot,
WinXP/Debian Sarge, GRUB with the WinXP bootloader moved to
some partition or other, not sure which one). Any recommendations,
E.g. is there any chance of Linux incompatibility? How well
does cfdisk and/or parted work? Will manually partitioning
the drive make it hard to use the Windows backup software?
How reliable are the things, and what kind of performance can
I expect over USB 1.1 ?

I am running Red Hat 9.0. I have 2 250GB drives in my box. I use

At any rate, a few weeks ago I tried imaging the drive and I received
some "Read Sector Error" on a specific directory. Ghost asks me if I
want to output the error to A:GHOSTERR.TXT. when I try and do that, I
receive the error "Cannot Open GHOSTERR.TXT".
I am wondering if I have a bad spot on my disk. And if so, is Linux
like Windows where it can mark a spot bad and just not use it? O...Re: Linux hard drive sequence (/hdx drive mappings) Question clarification

On a dual boot system, linux can be downloaded to a FAT32 partition,
and then just one cd is burned. "linux askmethod" can be used to find
the .iso images on the FAT32 partition. how would that be done with
solaris? not eager to burn 5 (?) cd's, one is more than enough.
