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.

Why don't we take a step back and ask what exactly you are trying to achieve and why. In other words, rather than asking a question about how you are trying to do something, let's get back to asking a question about what your purpose and reasoning is.
Since you are on Linux, using Amanda, I presume you are using gnutar for your backups. DLE's using gnutar don't need to be partitions. If you are using dump on Linux, don't.
From the Amanda FAQ: "A DLE refers to one entry in the disklist of an Amanda-configuration. General usage was to describe them as partitions, or file systems. But in fact they do not have to be either. They can be directory trees, or multiple trees, or trees with some branches cut off. So the more generic term DLE was coined."
