Launch FWB and view by device:

fwbpic1 The target
drive is
highlighted


Select Auto Initialize:

fwbpic2 Quick format should
be more than acceptable.


The requisite warning window. Be sure.

fwbpic3


What you get when you are done:

fwbpic4


Look at the partitions (select View Partitions from the Devices Menu):

view partitions Result is below.

fwbpic5 FWB has automatically
created as many partitions
as it needs to fill the disk
up. This drive is only 700Meg
so there is but one partition.


Delete the Apple_HFS partition:

fwbpic6 Of course!


View the partitions again:

fwbpic7


Create a 160 Meg root partition (select Create New Volume... from the Devices Menu):

create new volume Result is below.

fwbpic8


Create a 128 Meg swap partition:

fwbpic9


Use the rest of the space to create a usr partition (note that the size in this screen shot is incorrect - I used use the rest of the space, not just 300Meg):

fwbpic10


Review the final result (view partitions):

fwbpic1
