cfdisk CentOS4 SMEServer

I was trying to locate an install of cfdisk to help managing the drives on my SMEServer. There is no readily obvious yum repo with cfdisk and I eventually used an rpm that would work with Fedora.

However, cfdisk kept reporting ‘FATAL Error Cannot seek drive’ and a quick search reveals that cfdisk does not yet understand large drives like the 1Tbyte drives I have installed.

Outcome, dont waste time on cfdisk.
