I think it is a dreadful program.
Admittedly I haven't used it for a year or two,
but when I did it either refused to partition the disk,
or else partitioned it in a crazy way.
I've always thought the way Redhat/Fedora try to force you to use DiskDruid
is even more annoying than their addiction to disk-labels.
What's wrong with fdisk anyway?
It does what it says on the tin.
By the way, what madman invented parted?
Does anyone understand what all those deicmals mean?
