Partitions under linux system
I used fdisk -l command to check out the partitions under my linux system and it gave me the following output:
but i am not able to understand what does all this information is all about. I just know that these are the device files and used as an interface for the device drivers.
Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders, total 625142448 sectors

Can someone please help me explain this output.
I am also trying to create a file in one separate partition in linux. How should i do that? Is it possible to create the file in one of the partitions mentioned above?
