Hi Thomas,

I agree what you said,however,my problem is that
when I use 'mke2fs /dev/hda2', it will report following errors:
"Device size reported to be zero.  Invalid partition specified, or
 partition table wasn't reread after running fdisk, due to
 a modified partition being busy and in use.  You may need to reboot
 to re-read your partition table".
The fact is that I have created four partitions: hda1,hda2,hda3,hda4.
And their cylinder is:1-1000,1001-2000,2001-3000,3001-4000.However,
when kernel boots up,it only could find hda1.
After rebooting,I use fdisk to find the status of the four partitions.They are
all still there.I dont know why kernel could not find them. I have used tools
to dump the first sector,the four partition table is:

I think they are all right.But why kernel could not find these partitions?

Best Regards,
Alan

The partition table is written to the first partition
on the device, in your example hda1.
Use mke2fs on hda2 and I am sure it work just great.
