fdisk (device name)  for example: for the first ide drive: fdisk /dev/hda, for the first scsi drive: fdisk /dev/sda, for the second ide drive: fdisk /dev/hdb - it defaults to the boot drive

By the way, 4 points wont get you much response

Well, it was a *really* easy question... ;-)

If you can't find fdisk, try "/sbin/fdisk" and remember you have to run it as root.
