dear parteders,

i replaced hda and booted into redhat9 (root on hdb), with a couple (now
nonexistent) filesystems on hda still in /etc/fstab, and i think this is
why, when i invoked parted, for every operation, it told me that it was
unable to inform the kernel of changes, and that i should reboot.  i
think that's the reason because, when i commended those filesystems out
of /etc/fstab, rebooted, and did more with parted, i no longer got that
warning.  did i guess right?  what's the real reason?

in the meantime, i had done mkpartfs for a primary linux-swap partition,
it warned me about not being able to inform the kernel, i chose "ignore"
(vs. cancel), rebooted, edited /etc/fstab for the new swap, and tried
swapon -a, which wouldn't take.  apparently the linux-swap partition was
not created or formatted properly, apparently choosing ignore wasn't a
viable option.  (got it going by doing remove, mkpartfs, swapon.)

redhat 9 +up2date, parted-1.6.3-11

thank you,
