No FSMO roles and partitions, ace has a great graphic that shows the paritions

Only similarity is that there are some forest wide and some domain wide roles for both

FSMO roles are explained in the wiki   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexible_single_master_operation   you can also search around for more info.  

After reading those send follow up questions.

Thanks

Hi

Partitions are made how the objects stored in the active directory database. FSMO role Is different its defined what roles are for forest level and domain level. But the attribute fSMORoleOwner in the partition makes the which server is the owner and from there only you can make changes which will updated to the partitions.(Like if you change any schema attributes it will be updated in schema partitions and replicated to all other DC)
