Help, how can I create new partition on my HDD (OS Fedora 11) ?


I would like to create a new partition to install Solaris OS.
I need help please. My current partition table is below:

# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or vol_id(8) for more info

Well, what you've posted isn't going to help much. It shows what you've GOT defined, not if you've got any free space left to define anything else. Do you??

Also, what version/distro of Linux are you using? How much free space is on the drive? When you're installing Solaris, you can set it up to use any free disk space that's out there. If you searched on here or on Google, there's lots of info on how to do it:
