Ok. Went and found cfdisk. Not my thing. I like graphical gizmos. I like to see what is happening.

my libparted was in /usr, I install _everything_ in /usr ( some I install in /opt, but besides that everything goes into /usr). Once you use linux for awhile and get comfortable, you develop your own habits and figure out the way you want things to be. Me, I only install to /usr, the next person might come along and say everything must go in /usr/local, someone else might say /opt.........

on cfdisk, yeah, everybody's got their own thing. personally, I can be in and out of cfdisk in less than a minute or so, but that's the program I've been using for 4 1/2 years now so I'm pretty comfortable with it. you just have to find what you like and learn the in's and out's of it.
