I am using the ext2 filesystem just like the book says.
All I did was
1. Run cfdisk
2. Remove all existing partitions
3. Create one primary, bootable partition for the / drive of my LFS System- 3GB
4. Create Logical Drives for /home - 10GB, /root - 5 GB, and /usr - 20GB (20GB remain free)
I calculated the number of MB simbly by multiplying 1024MB/GB by the number of GB I wanted- so for the / drive, I calculated 1024*3 and put in the result
I have to tell you I never realized that a filesystem might not fill up an entire partition.... I thought the whole "left over raw space" was when a partition size exceeded the maximum capacity of the filesystem. Surely I haven't gone anywhere near this limit...
So how can I resize my partition?
