Alok,

I am not sure what you want to do. Do you want to add a drive to the system or do you want to repartition the existing drive in the server?

If I understand correctly, you want to repartition your drive with the existing os intalled (redhat 9) while the system is booted.

There is no way that I know of that you can repartion a drive while it is mounted. You can use a program called parted. It allows to repartition your drive without losing your into.
