    Add Partition
    Is it possible in os 10.4 to add a partition to a hard drive.
    I have an 80 gb drive with 50gb used for my os, i want to make a 30 gb fat32 partition. Is this possible?

    computer-name:~ James$ diskutil list
    /dev/disk0
    #: type name size identifier
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *74.5 GB disk0
    1: EFI 200.0 MB disk0s1
    2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 49.4 GB disk0s2

    you will note 25gb of free space, this is the space i want to add a partition to.

    thanks
    JAMES

    Specs:
    17 inch 2 GHz C2D imac (5,1) with 3GB DDR2 RAM, X1600 (128MB memory) GPU - OSX 10.6.3
    With bootcamp assistant this is quite easy. And can be done. But you'll need the 30 GB free to do it. And it's also a good idea to leave a few GBs free in your OS X partition. The system seems to run better that way.

    Specs:
    MB White 160GB, 2GB RAM,
    in 80GB disk you wont have entire 80GB usable. It's about 74-75GB only. You can check that from disk utility. In this if you make a partition of the entire free space then you might get startup disk full pop-ups.
