qstn regarding cfdisk

hey, im dual-booting win32 and debian woody.
when i get to 'partition hd" in the install menu, and cfdisk is shown, how do i name/label the parition?
i didnt see any option to name the partitions in cfdisk. while the windows partitions are labelled, i couldnt see how i could do the same on the new partitions using cfdisk.

(i havent done much systems work, so, im not gonna try to use fdisk just yet - wud like to just name/label my partition)
thanks in advance.

what kind of partitions are you trying to label ?
If that is ext2/ext3 I don't think you can and I don't think you would need that!!

If is vfat run windoze

it was pretty stupid really, shuda read a bit more into what the "ALternate" options during install were.

all i had to do was "Install a linux partition", which was where i could select the label for it.

thnx anyway.
