Hi, it's me again - nope, I still haven't got round to sorting out my system yet.

I'm now re-partitioning my /dev/sda device (on a G5) so that I can create a bootstrap, after which I will then install linux on other partitions on /dev/sdb. I do not want to remove my OS X or reinstall it, so would like to resize the existing partitions.

However, using 'parted' and typing print I get the following two partitions:

1. Start 0.000 End 0.031 Name 'Apple'
3. Start 128.031 End 152627.831 Filesystem hfs+ Name Untitled

- Why does it jump from 1 to 3? And why does the first partition span 0.031kb only? What happened to the space between 0.031 and 128.031?

More importantly, what should I do with these two partitions to install a bootstrap? Can I remove the first partition?

Thanks,

Terence
