# 1  


I just finished installing Solaris 5.8 and I tried to install StarOffice, it said I was out of room. Now I have a 3 gig HD and I THOUGHT that I gave 512 to swap and kept the rest for storage room.
How do I check how much room I have, how would I if I figured out I don't have enough room add another partition?

Use the fdisk utility to read the partition table. Be careful and do not write new ones Smilie Just print the existing tables.

Feel free to upload the results to the thread.

Thanks for the DF info. Could you provide the fdisk info?
# 5  


i'm pretty bad with command line at the moment, what exactly would the fdisk command would I need to run

man fdisk only confused me more, making no progress at the moments...
# 6  
Please post the fdisk man page for your system.
