FDISK is a utility, included in all versions of MS-DOS and Windows, for
formatting (preparing) a hard disk drive to hold data and to logically
partition the disk, specifying and naming major portions of it for
different uses. FDISK is used to prepare and partition a brand new hard
drive, and typically most personal computers today arrive with the drive
already partitioned and loaded with the operating system and perhaps
other software. A typical personal computer today arrives with a single
partition that is addressed by the operating system as the logical C
drive. (Some PCs also have one or two diskette drives addressed as the A
and B drives. PCs with CD-ROMs also usually address the CD-ROM as the D
drive. But a hard disk drive can be divided into and addressed as
several "logical" drives, or partitions.)

What is the real meaning of fdisk?
