I think I posted a message in an inapropriate threat...
I had a little problem while formatting my CF card, I wanted to create a fat16 primary partition, and an ext2 to install JLIME.

I did this with ubuntu 8.04 and Gparted, after that it automaticly mounts both partitions, fat16 is ok, but the ext2 one has already a folder named "found and lost" witch is lock, and I can't place any file in this partition...

I must have made a mistake, could someone help me please?

thanks!

sadly ubuntu isn't very good at doing these types of things due to a lack of true root.. yeah gparted is awesome and all.. but command line is better... i suggest puppy linux... it boots quick and i've had so much success with their gparted that i use it so i don't have to remember commands to partition...

god speed.
