Hi all,
I have just installed an 80GB Maxtor in an 8.2 machine, and naturally
enough I want to partition it ( BIOS detected it automatically - even down
to the model). For this I was going to use fdisk as in

fdisk /dev/hdc

(it is MASTER on IDE1). But fdisk says that it is "unable to open /dev/hdc"
and I can't understand why! I know I am doing something stupid, but can
somebody tell what it is? TIA
Al
