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.

Do you specifically need cfdisk? I couldn't find it as a seperate download, but since it will need to be on a bootable disc anyway, I would reccommend going over to the Slackware site and making copies of the boot floppies or CD. That way you will get the choice of either cfdisk or fdisk.
If you just need a partitioning tool, then the ulitmate boot CD This has 11 partition tools, and a whole host of other tools.

First of all, proper english please. "wer" is not a word.
I see that you are in Malaysia, so English is probably not your first language, I do not mean to be critical.
We need to know what distrobution you are using. I do not see any place directly to download it, but there might be a package for your distro, you can download and install that.
Neither is "distrobution" !
Added to that, English should be capitalised...

Umm .... glass houses. If someone is going to publicly instruct others as to what proper English is, then that person should not be suprised if others hold him/her to the same standard. Sorry, I don't mean to be critical, but LQ has many members whose native language is not English, and if you dismiss your errors as typos, how about extending that same consideration to others? -- J.W.
