    HELP!!! Partition Time

    I am seconds away from installing the new RH9 and want to create a small (5 gig) space on the drive to keep files so when I upgrade distro's I dont have to keep downloading them.

    Help me figure out how to partition with fdisk (redhat auto) so that I can remove some of the space on the main partition and what to call the new partition (shouldnt it be like hdb or something rather than hda#)

    Thanks PB I know your online so if you are please respond or pm me

    oh yea
    you do need to back up that partiotn be fore you modify it!!

    if you have 2 hds that would be better yet!!

    Hey thanks PB, I busted into chat with Alan and he helped out too. What I did was a clean install and went to auto format, then partitioned the / partition which was 577281 into a 527281 size and the free space I made /home1 and checked the block that said make this a primary partition.

    It created hda2 so I think I am alright now?

    Thanks for the help sorry to be shouting at you in pm and all but you know, when you find someone that is "GOOD" you want their help
