I have erased my internal HD and did a nand restore, I know how to get into the command line mode and know I should be using fdisk to create:

/dev/hda1 Start 1 End 20 Blocks 10048+ id 83 System Linux
/dev/hda2 Start 21 End 40 Blocks 10080 id 83 System Linux
/dev/hda3 Start 41 End 11905 Blocks 5979960 id c System Win95 FAT32 (LBA)

Only thing I can not figure out is how I can do this, can anyone help?

If you're only wondering is how to use fdisk to create these partitions, it's pretty easy:
  • from the command line, type fdisk /dev/hda
  • type m to get help
  • type p to check the existing partition table
    - at this point, if the partition table already matches what you need, then you may have another problem
  • type d to delete an existing partition
    - follow prompts to delete all existing partitions
  • type n to create a new partition
  • type p to create a new primary partition
    - enter partition number
    - enter the first cylinder
    - enter the last cylinder
    - default is probably type 83
  • repeat partition creation steps
  • type t to change the partition type for the DOS partition
  • type p to verify the partition table matches what you need
  • type w to write the new table and exit fdisk
