    I just installed an RPM how do I run the program-the program is qtparted-I'm really sorry but Fedora didn't come with an instrution manual.

    You might need to make an icon for yourself if the rpm didn't made it for you. However, for the sake of simplicity, you can probably open a command line and type the name of the application.

    Re:Stupid Question

    have you tried running "qtparted" ?

    Otherwise (as root) run "updatedb" and then do a "locate parted" and see if it finds it. I dont have that tool installed, so I can't say for certain. Although, their website may help.

    I don't know if you were going to, but you can't reformat a drive while it's in use. You need to load off a cd or something

    Thanks, I got it working. I formatted all the partitions and installed Win XP. From there I installed Fedora-and now it is working perfectly
