Hullo everybody

how can I create File-based thin-provisioned VHD on a Filesystem for VM images  for a local non-shared Filesystem (EXT type SR), for with the configurations i have dont allow me make a 4th partition
Below are my configurations.

[root@virtualintranet /]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 1998.2 GB, 1998233534464 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 242938 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1         523     4194304   83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2             523        1045     4194304   83  Linux
/dev/sda3            1045      242938  1943010845+  8e  Linux LVM

[root@virtualintranet /]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1             4.0G  1.6G  2.2G  42% /
none                  376M     0  376M   0% /dev/shm
