Not really the right list.

\part{} does not restart chapters and sections, it is for large
scale divisions of a document where there other section numbering
continues through the divisions.

Try replacing \part by \chapter.

Subject: [pdftex] (newbie) problem with sections


i must say i don't know much about Tex and Latex but i am trying to
learn it
if this mailing list is not the right place to ask my question, please
me know where to go.

i use a mac os X Latex distributed version downloaded via fink : 

here is the pb :

i use the article style.
i have some thing like that :

/part(part 1)
/section(section 1)
/section(section 2)

/part(part 2)
/section(section 1)
/section(section 2)

(do not worry about the "/" and "(", i just don't know how to do
and brackets on a pc :-)

after a "pdflatex rapport.tex" the pb is that in part 2, the section are

numbered 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2

any idea ??
