Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

yah but it may not be in your path so try typing
whereis cfdisk or something...
and if you finally come to the verdict that you don't have it, you can either
a) go download the package
b) use fdisk instead
OK, I am going to reboot later.
actually, my problem is that I have an unallocated part released from my XP partition (NTFS) by partition magic. I want use that space to create a new FAT partition so I can share files between two operation system.
Now I am sure I don't have cfdisk installed in my redhat 8.0.
and I downloaded cfdisk-2.11z-alt1.1.i586.rpm, (is this OK, but I have a i686 CPU).
then I type:
rpm -iv cfdisk-2.11z-alt1.1.i586.rpm
it told me I need libtinfo.so.5
then I download ncurses-5.2-34.i686.rpm which said have libtinfo.so.5, but when I try to install it, system show a lot of conflict, it seem like I have already have a ncurses installed. and I can not do "rpm -U ncurses-5.2-34.i686.rpm", also I does not allow me to "rpm -e ........." because ncurses is required for something ............
anyway, I understand why I get so much complaint. does anybody have cfdisk in redhat 8.0 and if so how do you get it?
