cfdisk for dos?


i dont' have a cd rom drive so i copied DamnSmallLinux with floppies to a 50mb partition. i need to make a swap partition, but how do i do this using dos? fdisk doesn't have an option for "linux swap" or an option for putting the partition at the end of the drive either. i tried tomsrtbt but that doesn't have cfdisk. it did have mkswap, but i sitll can't make the partition at the end of the drive.. which is what i need cuz i need the rest to install.

currently i have hda1 (50mb) as a primary dos partition

then all i can make is an extended dos logical drive..

any suggestions?

Toms root, boot floppy has linux fdisk which is a non-graphical cfdisk. You can not create a linux partition with DOS fdisk.
