From http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/partition...n_types-1.html:

Quote:
16 Hidden DOS 16-bit FAT >=32M
32 NOS
What are you talking about?

Also, I think fdisk is a safer and easier to use utility, but that's just me.

If you don't like fdisk for some reason, check out gparted -- a GNOME front end for parted. That's substantially more intuitive.

Code:
sudo apt-get install gparted
