Guys you can create a real mess if you use fdisk and dd without
first reading how they work. And then experiment with them. I am writing
rather slowly a paper on using these tools and exactly how to use them.
It is long and I plan to put it on my web page when it is complete. As
for parted and gparted which are exactly the same they both will not
work with ext3 file systems. I tried both and got the same result.
