Re: Format of hard disk

What, exactly, does "format" mean to you?

> [...] HP-UX [...]

Not a very detailed description of anything,
hardware or software. Usually a good start:

uname -a

Is there some actual problem which you are
trying to solve?

Re: Format of hard disk

Normally there is no "format" (compared to a PC) - you just create the structures of the volume manager.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
