Having block devices instead of char devices to use fdisk


I tried to use fdisk on a newly attached hard drive, but it failed.
I opened #583589 [1] and LaMont Jones pointed that fdisk only works on
block devices.

I don't manage to find or create the corresponding blocks devices for
my hard drive. Is there a FAQ entry on this somewhere ?
