Extra Partition after cfdisk


I used Cfdisk to make my partitions

part1 /
part5 /swap
part6 /usr
part7 /home

After writing all the partitions I get to the mounting filesystems section and I have part2 listed. What should I do?

I'll try to answer, as far as I understand the question.
Your 2nd partition is probably just your extended partition,
the "container" which holds all of your logical partitions (part5 - part7).

So, as far as mounting goes, you can ignore your 2nd partition.
