       GNU Parted - a partition manipulation program

       parted [options] [device [command [options...]...]]

       This manual page documents briefly the parted command.  Complete documentation is distrib-
       uted with the package in GNU Info format; see below.

       parted is a disk partitioning and partition resizing program.  It allows  you  to  create,
       destroy,  resize,  move and copy ext2, ext3, linux-swap, FAT and FAT32 partitions. This is
       useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganising disk usage, and  copying
       data to new hard disks.

       -h, --help
	      displays a help message.

       -i, --interactive
	      where necessary, prompts for user intervention.

       -s, --script
	      never prompts for user intervention.

       -v, --version
	      displays the version.

	      The block device to partition.

       [command [options]]
	      Specifies  a command to parted. If no command is given, parted will give you a com-
	      mand prompt. Commands are:

	      check partition
		     does a simple check on partition.

	      cp [source-device] source dest
		     copies the source partition's filesystem on source-device	(or  the  current
		     device  if  no other device was specified) to the dest partition on the cur-
		     rent device.

	      help [command]
		     prints general help, or help on command if specified.

	      mkfs partition fs-type
		     make a filesystem fs-type on partition. fs-type can be one of "FAT",  "ext2"
		     or "linux-swap".

	      mklabel label-type
		     Creates  a new disklabel (partition table) of label-type.	label-type should
		     be one of "bsd", "gpt", "loop", "mac", "mips", "msdos", "pc98" or "sun".

	      mkpart part-type [fs-type] start end
		     make a part-type partition with filesystem fs-type (if specified), beginning
		     at start and ending at end (in megabytes).  part-type should be one of "pri-
		     mary", "logical" or "extended"

	      mkpartfs part-type fs-type start end
		     make a part-type partition with filesystem fs-type beginning  at  start  and
		     ending at end (in megabytes)

	      move partition start end
		     move  partition  to  start at start and end at end. Note: move never changes
		     the minor number

	      name partition name
		     set the name of partition to name. This option works only on  Mac	and  PC98
		     disklabels. The name can be placed in quotes, if necessary

	      print  displays the partition table

	      quit   exits parted

	      resize partition start end
		     resize  the  filesystem  on  partition  to  start	at  start  and end at end

	      rm partition
		     deletes partition

	      select device
		     choose device as the current device to edit.  device  should  usually  be	a
		     Linux hard disk device, but it can be a partition, software raid device or a
		     LVM logical volume if that is necessary

	      set partition flag state
		     change the state of the flag on partition to  state.  Flags  supported  are:
		     "boot",  "root", "swap", "hidden", "raid", "lvm" and "lba".  state should be
		     either "on" or "off"
