Default linux novice needs guidance

Hi guys,

I've got one of these :

I'm trying to follow the guide here

Last time I tried I got stuck because the program cfdisk has to be downloaded
somewhere so it ended up on the internal HD thus I had trouble using it to partition the HD.

I thought that what I need to do is run cfdisk from a USB flash drive.

I've downloaded cfdisk but I don't know how to copy it over to the flash drive because I don't know where it is on the HD.

Can someone make an expert guess?

You can try locate cfdisk. Failing that try find / -name cfdisk*.

However copying it over might not work, as there might be dependencies.

(@mods -- please move to the linux subforum.)
