hello, i am trying to mount an external USB hard disk whose partitions
i have previously deleted entirely;
i am trying to repartition it with only one large ext3 partition but
when i plug the disk in i receive the following:

If you're doing this from an xterm window within a DE, or -- if
you've installed autofs -- the console, then these errors are to be
expected, since it's trying to auto-mount a blank disk.


Ignore the errors and use your favorite tool to create the new
partitions.
