Hard-disk partition guide    Last updated: April 12th 2005

Onebase Linux uses cfdisk program for partitioning hard-disk. Those who have no idea about this program can learn from this guide.

(Minimum space required for OL : 2 GB)

Name of partitions in linux

For example "C :" drive in windows*tm, is listed as "hda1" by linux naming conventions. (a vfat partition is a windows partition)

The very first step in the installation is partitioning hard-disk. when you press 1 you will see a dialog box (cfdisk) showing all the partitions present in your system.

Buttons

You will see a number of buttons at the bottom of the dialog box. And at the top showing the available partitions and/or freespace available in your system.

New partition

If your hard-disk is unpartitioned and the partitions in the dialog box is listed as "free spaces" then you can create a new partition by highlighting it, after this you will be given options for specifying the space,... for the new partition. Likewise create two partitions, one for Onebase Linux and the other for linux swap which is optional.

Changing type

You need to change the type of the partition created. (you will find the TYPE button), Highlight the main partition, (where Onebase will be installed) and Press the Type and enter 82 (native linux partition). Similarly for swap partition, Press Type and enter 83 (linux swap partition)

This also applies to existing partitions where just changing its Type is enough.

Important: Before pressing "Quit", Press "write" to save the partition table
