    Why not just use good old-fashioned fdisk(8)?

    No, it's a Linux command:
    Code:
    man 8 fdisk

    I would like to kindly suggest that it is not safe to assume that every member of this forum reads every single thread (and keeps up daily/hourly with all of them)...

    - because that is what it would take for any random member to know what you said on your previous thread... :P

    Most, if not all, Linux distributions include a partitioner with the installation program.

    From your choice of distro, it looks like you're installing SuSE, and if so, it comes with a very good partitioner as part of YAST (this is a setup tool that you will use whilst installing SUSE). Have you completed the installation yet?? Are you in the middle of installation?? While installing SUSE you will be asked for your partitoning setup, and you can set it up any way you want.

    Good luck.
