I owe.. <tip type="Unix and partition fun"> Just spent a half hour banging my head against an emtpy beer bottle and thought I'd spare some of you the same heartache: Just got a gee-whiz new 45GB disk for one of our servers at work. Popped it in the box, spun it up, and tried to create a single partition for it using fdisk(on linux). No matter what kind of options I tried, the disk would not show up larger than about 10GB. Turns out fdisk sucks. So use cfdisk instead. Creates 'better' partitions acorrding to the man pages, and it can create partitions as large as 72GB(biggest disk I had on hand to test with). Maybe that was the day I missed back in rookie unix administrator class or something.. </tip> .djc.
