RE: Debian Installer - Problems Partitioning

Thanks for the encouragement.  How do I find the PATH?

I changed the directory to /sbin and typed what you said.

/sbin # ./fdisk /dev/sda
/bin/sh: ./fdisk: not found

I assume I will find fdisk elsewhere?  I tried 'find / -name "fdisk"'
but nothing was returned.

There is nothing to be ashamed of!

I don't know the PATH on this busybox. Try 
cd /sbin
./fdisk /dev/sda

and then (after partitioning) return to the installer.
