How to partition my Macbook drive?

Hi,

As I'm new to Mac I'm unsure how one goes about partitioning a Mackbooks internal drive. Will I need a 3rd party app?

In the Applications folder there is a folder called Utilities. Inside this folder there is a program called Disk Utility. You can manage your drive with as many partitions as you like.

Don't forget to BACK UP!!!!

go to applications>utilities>disc utility...

but to partition you will need to boot up on the install dvd,

then you will find the disc utility in the finder bar.

this will wipe the hd clean. set up the number of and size of the partitions you want.

then reinstall everything.

I have three partitions
one for everyday usage
one for audio/daw (and tweaked for this)
one for storage.
