My drive 0 (hda) has three partitions. The first two are FAT32 Windoze and I have wiped, removed, and re-created the third with cfdisk. I selected 'Logical' as the type, through cfdisk, and it was assigned a Type of 83 (Linux). I can mount it and everything seems to be ok. My problem is this: I want to copy everything from my Linux drive (hdc) /usr directory to this new partition but when I do 'cp -r * /newpartition' I get error messages that report the drive type as UMSDOS. The files seem to copy, but it doesn't appear that I have the correct format on that partition. Is any of this making sense? My goal is to mount that partition as /usr to make use of the extra space, but I don't think I'm doing something right. Do I have to do something beside setup a partition with cfdisk?
Thanks In Advance
