Or you could just use fdisk all the way.
Thanks. Tried what you said. My unpartitioned space is jammed between two Windows NTFS partitions.
Fdisk displayed this for the unpartitioned space I had:
partition - Start - Finish - Blocks - id - System
/dev/hde2 - 1276 - 9963 - 69786360 - f - W95 Ext'd (LBA)
When trying to use cfdisk, i got the following:
FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 0 Partition begins after end-of-disk
As for fdisk, it says something like:
Cannot read partition? Cant remember exactly.
Dont know if this helps, but i know there is about 600MB of unpartitioned space at the end of the drive. This does not include the 20GB i cleared up in the middle of the drive for Linux.
