Where's Disk Druid


I installed a new HD. It seems like I can partition / format / & mount the new drive with Disk Druid. I wish I could find it. Any help on making my new HD useable would be appreciated. Thanks.

Telling us what distro might help. With mandrake you have diskdrake. Other distros have other tools (cfdisk, etc). You will always have fdisk.

Hmmm....I thought that Disk Druid could only be used while you were installing a system. I didn't think it could be run on its own. 'parted' is a good partitioning software (GUI 'qtparted').

Looking at the side bar I see FC2. About time for an upgrade if you are still using FC2 BTW...

I have RedHat with Fedora Core. My descriptor says I have FC2 and one poster indicates I need an upgrade. I apparently installed WebMin and it has a partition manager. It tells me I have an unpartitioned drive and asks if I would like a Primary or Extended partition. Why would I want one over the other?
Thanks for your patience.
