Hi list,

Here's the partition table of my external drive:

 GNU Parted 1.8.9
 Using /dev/sde
 Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.
 (parted) print
 Model: Maxtor OneTouch II (scsi)
 Disk /dev/sde: 300GB
 Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
 Partition Table: msdos

 Number  Start   End     Size    Type      File system  Flags
  1      32.3kB  10.0GB  10.0GB  primary   ext3              
  2      10.0GB  30.0GB  20.0GB  primary   fat32             
  3      30.0GB  60.0GB  30.0GB  primary   ext3              
  4      60.0GB  300GB   240GB   extended                    
  5      60.0GB  120GB   60.0GB  logical   ext3              
  6      120GB   180GB   60.0GB  logical                     

I've created the new logical partition 6 using parted no problem, but
when I go to put an ext3 filesystem on it I get the following warning
and error message:

 (parted) mkfs 6 ext3
 Warning: The existing file system will be destroyed and all data on the
 partition will be lost. Do you want to continue?
 parted: invalid token: 6
 Yes/No? no

It's the 'invalid token' bit that I'm worried about.  If parted doesn't
know which partition I'm talking about I stand to lose an awful lot of

Is it safe for me to continue?
