Disk druid to add disc space to server


What commands do I use to add space to a server?
If I want to use disk druid, instead of fdisk or cfdisk, do I need to use the install disks?

I don't believe you can "add space" with a partitioning tool. You can create partitions or resize them, if that is what you mean by add space. Disk Druid is a tool used during installation. You can download a graphical version of Gparted and use the live cd to do your partitioning. Much easier and much less prone to errors.

Hope this helps,

Bob
