Creating a Partition and Filesystem

Once you have created a partition table, the disk will be marked as Free (free space; page 30) and you will be able to create a partition that holds a filesystem in the free space (Figure 3-24). Using the slider labeled Size, or the adjacent spin box, specify the desired size of the new partition. You can enter a label if you like. Next specify a filesystem type; under Fedora, ext4 filesystems are the most common. Typically you will want to own the filesystem, so allow the tick to remain in the check box labeled Take ownership of file system. If you want the filesystem to be encrypted, put a tick in the check box labeled Encrypt underlying filesystem. Finally, click Create. After checking with you, palimpsest will create the filesystem. If you did not use all of the free space, you can create additional partitions/filesystems in the same manner.
