Hello.
I'm going to format one of my hard-drivers through terminal in Fedora Core 5, but could only remeber part of the code to write, and thats mkfs.xfs /dev/sda1 (for example), but what should I write when i want to specify the volume name, and size of the partition? I tried to use QTParted, but that returned me an error message when choosing xfs filesystem. If anybody know about other partition tools for Fedora Core 5, I would be pleased.

Regards, Jan F.
