Yeah, a tea strainer.  Was this supposed to be a hard question? :-P

That'll add more than it'll remove.

It's a device that strains tea. :-)  The usual implementation
is a smallmesh wire thing with a handle; the mesh is fine enough
to hold the tea leaves and is usually made from stainless steel,
and the form of the mesh is a half-ball.  After straining the tea,
the liquid flows through the mesh, leaving the leaves sitting
in the inside of the bowl of the mesh for later discarding, disposal,
or even saving if one desires (whatever for, I can't imagine).

Another possible shape for the mesh might be conical, although I'm
not sure that's as practical.

Its size varies but the bowl size probably would be around 5 cm
in diameter; the handle might be another 10 cm in length, maybe.

As for acquisition: any store selling things such as eggbeaters,
spatulas, tongs, or manually-operated can openers should have them.
I don't know what you Brits call such shops.  (In the U.S. we have
mega-grocery-stores which sell soup to nuts, light bulbs, toothpaste,
motor oil, shampoo, squirt guns, and video tapes. :-)  We also have
"drug stores", which despire their name do not dispense illegal *,
although most do include a pharmacy for the prescribed ones; they only
differ from grocery stores in that they do not have as much food,
as far as I can tell.  However, in countries such as Austria, shopping
is done piecemeal; I suspect the U.K. has a similar philosophy,
although it may depend on the area.)

1. Long ago, in a partition far, far away...

Jedi knights,

Tomorrow I plan to partition and install Linux, then see Star Wars.
I've called Red Hat thrice, with unsatisfactory replies. I'm a bit
confused about partitioning on the Win98/Partition Magic side vs.
the logical partitioning inside Linux. I wish to preserve my
Win98 data, and want to be careful to keep my /boot partition
below the 1024 cyl/8GB threshold. I plan to take one of two paths,
depending on your advice. Here are the two scenarios, and then the
questions.

Given:
 Dell 450
 17GB disk
 128MB RAM
 Win98 uses ~4 GB (defragged)
 Partition Magic 4.0
 Redhat Linux 6.0

1) I'd rather optimize the free space on C by doing this:

0GB

        Win98 (4GB)             C drive
        free space (4<8GB)

        /boot partition (16MB)  invisible partition (extended?)
8GB
        /swap (128MB)           invisible partition (extended?)
        native Linux (~3GB)     invisible partition (extended?)

11GB
        Win98 (11GB<17GB)        D drive

17GB

2) ... Rather than doing this contiguous, sub 8GB approach:

0GB

        Win98 (4GB)             C drive
        freespace
5GB
        /boot (16 MB)           invisible partition (extended?)
        /swap (128MB)           invisible partition (extended?)
        native Linux (~3GB)     invisible partition (extended?)
8GB

        Win98 (8GB<17GB)        D drive

13GB

        Linux (13GB<17GB)       Linux partition

17GB

Questions:

1) Can I do scenario 1, or must I do scenario 2?
The PM partitions need not be contiguous, must they?

2) How many Linux partitions do I have to create on the Partition
Magic (Win98) side, two or three?
        a) If I go with scenario 1, I'll need at least two: one
           boot partition below the 8GB/1024 cyl barrier, and
           another above, but do I need to create one as well
           for swap?
        b) Do I, in general, have to create two PM partitions for
           Linux in either case:
           native (~3GB) and one swap (128MB), or just one,
           and let fdisk/DiskDruid slice things up INSIDE Linux?

2) For these two (or three) PM partitions, do I create any of them
as Primary, or are they Extended type partitions?

4) Is Darth Vader really Luke's father? Oops, sorry, wrong movie.
