Thank you for advice!

Cool! Mkswap is already installed
on 770. Would it interact?
I found e2fsprogs in repository, in
pool directory. There are libraries,
supporting this. What will be instal-
led, in deed?
Default has only tableteer. Additio-
nal servers must be listed too.

Huh! If ext3 support is in kernel,
I'd take it. For ext2, module has
to be loaded.

Looking over directories, I've found
sfdisk. Manual for it is a little
bit cryptic. Expects something like:
  sfdisk -uM /dev/mmcblk0 < my.conf.file
I'm not sure for "d" flag.
This "my.conf.file" is something I should
put to sfdisk. Syntax is real gem. Is
there someone doing it before?
My partitions on 1gb would be:
1. vfat (250mb, bootable)
2. swap (64mb)
3. ext3 (the rest of mmc)
I'd like to have advices on this, prior
to become owner of unusable mmc.

Best regards
