Hi Mathieu,

I found this sentence confusing:

        As an alternative means to use Parted it is distributed with
        many distributions most on them probably give you a way to use
        it in "rescue" mode : (Some may include patch that are not part
        of the stable branch of parted)

Can I suggest:

        Alternatively, Parted is included in many GNU/Linux
        distributions.  Moreover, Parted is often available in "rescue
        mode" that can be accessed by booting from the installation CDs.
        Note that GNU/Linux distributors frequently apply patches that
        are not included with the official GNU Parted versions published

This has been done

For the rest, not tonight, but maybe some other day but :

If you've got time, I have some other suggestions...
 * linking to programs that use libparted.  (i.e.: installers, gparted,
 qtparted, etc.)

 * linking to unapplied patches (eg HFS patch)
Is there a standard place to find such patch ? or are why going to make one ? Why we link to some patch if they don't make into parted ? Is this really a good thing ?

 * update the manual on the website to the one distributed with Parted.
 * CVS access should be last... not many users will be interested.

I'll move CVS Access to the end no problem!
