    Hi,
    I have installed the SuSE linux 10 with only one partition /dev/sda of 220GB. Now I wanted to split this into two or more. How can I do this??

    Hi,
    I did some error while splitting the disk and I thought of reinstalling the SuSE OS again and did it.
    Now the output of df -h is showing me only 65GB of space in /dev/sda4 instead of 203GB.
    What could be the reason?

    You haven't mounted the remaining 'slice' so it sits unused. 'Splitting' disk space means you need another mount point so you can present the rest of the storage.
