    partition table information


    hi

    I am working with linux kernel 2.6.12, i want to read partition table information for 250 G.B.
    harddisk.

    I am using 48-bit LBA addressing and i am able to read primary partition information but not able to read extended(information for logical partition) partition information, i found starting sector no of extended partition, when i read from that starting sector i found all zeros 16 bytes information,please tell me how do i read,thanks.

    with regards

    I'm probably missing the point but any partitioning program will give partition information.

    E.g. fdisk -l, parted <enter> list, etc..
