how did you go about coming to the conclusion that you don't have this command?

my expression might not be accurate.
when I type cfdisk, it said "no command .............", just like when you type "abcdef" as a command.

yah but it may not be in your path so try typing
whereis cfdisk or something...
and if you finally come to the verdict that you don't have it, you can either
a) go download the package
or..
b) use fdisk instead

Hi, thank you for your respond.

I am not sure. but when I do "locate cfdisk", it can not find anything? As you say, I should try whereis........ before I reboot to my redhat, can you tell me where can I downloaded the package?

and for the fdisk. it does not report unallocated partition on the hard drive. I am just wondering the cfdisk might do the job.

or you can also try sfdisk...

Hi, DrOZZ:

OK, I am going to reboot later.
actually, my problem is that I have an unallocated part released from my XP partition (NTFS) by partition magic. I want use that space to create a new FAT partition so I can share files between two operation system.

do you have any suggestion?

Try the command as root or try typing /sbin/cfdisk or /usr/sbin/cfdisk

try:
su -c 'find / -name cfdisk'

and it will probably print out the location of the file ...

Now I am sure I don't have cfdisk installed in my redhat 8.0.

and I downloaded cfdisk-2.11z-alt1.1.i586.rpm, (is this OK, but I have a i686 CPU).

then I type:
rpm -iv cfdisk-2.11z-alt1.1.i586.rpm

it told me I need libtinfo.so.5

then I download ncurses-5.2-34.i686.rpm which said have libtinfo.so.5, but when I try to install it, system show a lot of conflict, it seem like I have already have a ncurses installed. and I can not do "rpm -U ncurses-5.2-34.i686.rpm", also I does not allow me to "rpm -e ........." because ncurses is required for something ............

anyway, I understand why I get so much complaint. does anybody have cfdisk in redhat 8.0 and if so how do you get it?
