    FDISK Wont Execute


    I've been using linux for 2 days now (Fedora Core 6 KDE) installing packages ie mp3, vlc, drivers, ntfs mount....... (Honestly I prefer windows because I know my way round I guess. I'm using linux now because of my CEH course ne way I am a total newbie)
    When I reboot I wanted to mount my Fat32 drive but when I tried running Fdisk it said command not found????? I ran it before...so I tried running it from root still nothing I also tried /sbin/fdisk same message. But when I did ls I could see the command was there and I was typing it in the correct case. What has happened and is there an alternative way for me to see my partitions other than fdisk

    you must be 'root' to execute fdisk command.
    normal user can gain root privileges through su -.
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
