hi guys (and girls) !

i need some help, i've got a c3k and i want to bring it back to the factory settings (is from scratch the correct definition ?)
so, i launch my Z with the key combo D & B, i've got a minishell and i'm able to launch fdisk.
i've deleted all the partition (fdisk then p, then d followed by the partition number etc etc) and quit with w in order to save modification.
an fdisk -l /dev/hda says :
#fdisk -l /dev/hda

Disk /dev/hda: 4095 MB, 4095737856 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7936 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

   Device Boot    Start           End      Blocks     Id    System

then i want to recreate the new partitions as the Trisoft's readme says (in the SLC3000SYSPART.zip archive avaible on the trisoft.de website. The readme explain the partition plan as :
Contents of the system-partitions for the SL-C3000
TRIsoft / Marc Stephan / April 11th, 2006

Use the information in this document at your own risk.
TRIsoft is not liable for any damages that may result from
these informations.

SL-C3000 HDD-Partition table:
/dev/hda1  Start 1  End 204  Blocks 102784+  id 83 System Linux
/dev/hda2  Start 205 End 1020  Blocks 411264  id 83 System Linux
/dev/hda3  Start 1021 End 7936 Blocks 3485664 id c System Win95 FAT32 (LBA)

While using the fdisk on the Zaurus, double check that you set the
correct parameters for the drive. They have to be:
16 heads / 63 sectors/track / 7936 cylinders

Format the partitions with:
mke2fs -j /dev/hda1
mke2fs -j /dev/hda2
mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/hda3

/hda1 is a 97.2 MB partition containing the "Rom".
/hda2 is a 388.9 MB partition containing your "normal" filesystem.

The contents of /hda2 will be restored from the information in /hda1 if you
perform a factory reset (the thingy with the "OK"+PwrOn menu).

but when i want to create my first partition fdsik ask me :
Command action
   e   extended
   p   primary partition (1-4)

i don't know which choise i need to apply. E or P ??

Thanks for your help !!
i think that i'm coming back with a lot of another question (if i don't find information in the many threads ...)

ps: excuse me for my poor english (i'm french), if you can make soft answers, it would be appreciate wink.gif laugh.gif
