[ubuntu] how to partition a DVD

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello everyone, I'm pretty green with Ubuntu and Linux, so... I can't figure out how to partition a 4.4 GB DVD using the command line. I know it must involve fdisk and mkfs and maybe something else like wodim, but I can't figure how. Internet searches have yielded little except ads for apps with nice guis that do the job. But, I'd like to "roll my own". Thank you. Mark Allyn (Hardware)
