so what exactly is the problem, are you out of diskspace? You can create a new partition by running fdisk, and then execute the following command to format it as ext3:
mke2fs -j /dev/hdxX
Ok. But how do I make sure that I don't write over existing data. For example I only have three partitions. Boot, Swap, and Primary. I have lots of space left on the primary but I don't know exactly where the data ends so I can safely start a new partition. If I run the command you have issued will it automatically know where to start new partition so I won't write over existing data. Thanks.
