overlap - Sun Solaris

hi all, I am re-installing solaris 9 and am using fdisk to define my parttions on the solaris install console. I have 2 disks on the machine. 1drive is 9 gig and the 2nd is 5 gig. when I go into fdisk in the solaris install console manager by hitting the F4 key to modify the slices it says "overlap" when I am looking at the disk I am going to modify.

    Default overlap

    hi all, I am re-installing solaris 9 and am using fdisk to define my
    parttions on the solaris install console. I have 2 disks on the machine.
    1drive is 9 gig and the 2nd is 5 gig. when I go into fdisk in the solaris
    install console manager by hitting the F4 key to modify the slices it says
    "overlap" when I am looking at the disk I am going to modify. I have looked
    on the sun docs page and it explains it this way:
    overlap - The specified slice is defined as a representation of a disk
    region. The VTOC value is V_BACKUP. By default, slice 2 is an overlap slice
    that is a representation of the whole disk.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----
    Note -
    You can specify overlap only when size is existing, all, or start:size

    can someone please explain what this means?



    F5 for help in the sun install console is little help as well. it just says
    the you must fix the "overlap" before proceding.



    I dont understand ...................sorry

    Ignore the overlap slice - it's just a slice which represents the whole
    disk (or whole Solaris FDISK partition on x86).
    Add the other slices you want, e.g. / and swap as a minimum.

    ok ...............That make a little better sense than it did before.

    thanks Gabriel

    I did notice that the SUN told me that I had I "resolve" the overlap before
    I could continue. I just backspaced the work overlap and made my partition
    and that seemed to work fine.
