Hello, Gilan --

I think that the command is "sudo" -- rather than "sudu".  Also, I 
seriously question the wisdom of using ext2; ext3 or ext4 is much more 
appropriate today.  I am reasonably sure that the command is incomplete 
as you present it here because it lacks a format parameter.  Sorry -- I 
do not have time right now to research the correct form of the command 
for you.
