No problem... I was just giving you an example of how to pass authentication
via shell using an example I had of killing a process. You're not killing a
process, so everything that comes after "sudo" needs to be your own command,
so you'd do:
echo $pw | sudo sfdisk -s
But you already have a workable solution, so this is just FYI...
