udayn, please read the rules.

You are repeatedly breaking rule 4 by bumping up your thread and by starting new threads on the same subject. If you have a follow-up question, post it in the same thread.

And don't simply say "it doesn't work out". No one can help with a bug report like that. Tell us precisely what happened. Cut and paste your commands together with the results. And tell us precisely what you expected to happen instead.

DukeNuke2, that is a great link! I added it to the forum header.

mkdir isn't the correct way to create a 100 MB file.
