Description of problem:
In Section 5.1 - Viewing the Partition Table, of the Customization Guide for 
Red Hat Linux 9, the file systems listed for parted appears to be missing at 
least one entry.

On page 32 of the pdf you will find this sentence, 
Says this, "The Filesystem is the file system type, which can be one of ext2, 
ext3, FAT, hfs, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, hp-ufs, sun-ufs, or xfs."  
This is incomplete though in that it is missing fat32 and fat16.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run parted /dev/hdb where /dev/hdb is a hard disk with a fat32 or fat16 file 
system on it.
2. Use print to see the file systems on the drive.
3. Observe that fat16 and or fat32 are file systems recognized by parted.

Actual Results:  I observed that fat32 was a file system recognized by parted.

Additional info:

I additionaly went to the following url, 
http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/#features, and read that "Parted supports 
both FAT16 and FAT32."

Comment 1 Tammy Fox 2003-10-03 22:33:23 UTC
Ah yes. I see both fat16 and fat32 listed.

Greetings Brian!

Thanks for spotting this! This update will appear in the RHEL4U1 release of the
System Admin Guide (was Config. Guide) shortly. Thanks again for finding this
and bringing it to our attention! :-)
