Hi, I am somewhat new to Parted.
I am running Parted 1.4.24 and I tried to fix "new partition overlapping with another partition." I would not let me do anything. I recently read in the mail list archives that the newer version should be able to fix it. You can read below how the overlapping happened.

My question now is: what is the best way to update Parted to the most recent version? Should I completely remove the current version and if yes, how? Or should I do something else?

How it happened:
I recently created another partition (/dev/hda8) (FAT32) using DiskDrake in Mandrake 7.1. After I restarted the computer, the Diskdrake gave me errors and I went to my newer Linux OS, RH 8, with the Parted version mentioned above and I tried to fix the problem. As you see, I had no luck.

Any help is greatly appreciated,


P.S. I am still new to Linux and I was hoping if someone could tell me if there is a general way to update programs in Linux (any standard procedure)? Thank you again.
