I just got my new iMac and would likt to repartition the drive to make myself a small partition for the virtual Memory swap file... I then realize I have no idea how to repartition the drive.

I've rebooted the computer with the Mac OS X install disk and got to a screen asking if I wanted to reformat my main hard drive.  Of course I indicate yes, but nowhere does it seem to allow or ask for a partition.

Any help in this area would be appreaciated.

Well, first off you dont need to create a new partition for your VM swap file. But, the easiest way, if you want to partition, is to boot off the OS 9 disk, and run Drive Setup. Do a custom initialisation and you should have the opportunity to partition.
