Why are you trying to get rid of the "current" "live" partition?

Don't you want to boot from the *other* partition, the one you want
to keep?

What is a command to unmount?

body:/home/andrius# unmount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/small
bash: unmount: command not found

that would be umount
so I did the mount command, and found my CDROM mounted:
/dev/scd0 on /media/cdrom0 type iso9660 (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,user=guest)


so I would issue the command:
$ umount /dev/scd0
