How do I create partition?
First I thought that you wanted to repatition your hole drive? But after some thinking...

You want to make a new patition without deleteing anything right..?

It is many way and programs that could do that! =)
I have not that very big experience in fdisk but I have used it some, if you do

fdisk /dev/sda

then press "m" to se the meny...

then "x" to get to expert..

then "m" to get expertmeny.. =P

their I think you can first move one of your partitions and then make a new one... =)

But if that sound to complicated... You can just use Gparted from a live cd! =) Very easy!!!

Thats the tool I have used most often... I'we tried their own live-cd but nerver got it to work any good... I use SLAX-live cd! =)

http://slax.hosting4p.com/download.php
(standard or killbill will be good)

After you have started SLAX you can just go to google.com and search for "SLAX Gparted" and press on link number 4... download it... dubbelclick on it.. press yes on the question if you want to mount it to live-system..

Then the rest is even easier.. =P

K-meny
System
Gparted
(Gparted will look up your harddrive at start..)
Then resize partition
Make new partition with ext2

If you dont have SLAX or if you dont have any good live-dist I can really recommed SLAX! It is really good to mount everything and always works good with internet, no configurationproblem. At least I have not have none.. =P

Best regards



// I would have gone with SLAX...

Easier is to install qtparted and run it. It should be in the FC 7 repositories, so a yum install qtparted should do it. There's also gparted for GNOME, but I, personally, prefer qtparted.

If you prefer a CLI tool, the basic parted should be already installed on your system. Look at info parted for details.
