i had a server which i cloned using dd but the problem is that the target drives were smaller then the original.
now i got errors mounting /dev/tmp as it tries to writ to unexisting sectors.

i would like to run some partitioning tool and delete the partition and create it again with the correct size but i cannot find a tool in the SCO (i am not a unix admin) when i run a standard disk tools on the disk it shows me only 1 partition but the /etc/filesystem says it has 5 partitions set...
fdisk shows me some partition but i think it could be the one of my tape drive
i have no idea where could i look for the device of my adaptec raid controller to be able to edit it using fdisk or some other tool or configuration file
