boostr.in questions - Question:how to Adding partitions on linux/unix?


Let's now use part of the free space to add some partitions.

    We will create a swap partition as /dev/sda4. This will be a primary partition, filling the 521 cylinder gap between the end of /dev/sda1 and the start of /dev/sda2. Don't even begin to wonder what crazy things cause this gap to exist; I created the gap deliberately so I could write this article.
    We will create a 40GB logical partition as /dev/sda8.
    Finally, we will create a small 2000MB logical partition for sharing data between the Linux and Windows systems. This will eventually be formatted as FAT32 (or vfat). It will be /dev/sda9.
