I have a 100 Gig FireLite external hard drive. All I want to know is if there is any way to create partitions on a hard drive like this.

With windows xp it's easy, just go to START-->CONTROL PANEL, then to ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, then to computer management and then click the + symbol next to disk management. Locate your 100GB external hard drive in the list and right click on it and select CREATE PARTITION. A partition wizard will then run and you will be able to set the size of the partition, what file system you want to use (FAT32 or NTFS) and then format it.
