-2. Partitioning and formating can even be done with the DNS323 itself in a telnet session using the command line tool fdisk. **Please be very careful with this tool, because if used wrongly you could lose all your data.** You need an up to date version of the fdisk tool; otherwise, you may get a segmentation fault. You can get a working version from this post in the forum: "[[http://forum.dsmg600.info/t3375-ffp%27s-fdisk-dies-with-segfault.html|ffp's fdisk dies with segfault]]"+2.
