Question A way to make (c)fdisk divide a drive into equal size partitions?

The title says it all. :-)

Anyone have a script, or method, that would allow (c)fdisk to divide a hard drive up into equal size primary partitions?

Take the total blocks, divide into 2, make each partition that size. You can further subdivide as necessary.

You can automate tasks like that to a degree, but its a really bad plan in my opinion.


cfdisk, fdisk, partition, primary
