7.21.3. Partition Fields

Above the partition hierarchy are labels which present information about the partitions you are creating. The labels are defined as follows:
  • Device : This field displays the partition's device name.
  • Mount Point/RAID/Volume : A mount point is the location within the directory hierarchy at which a volume exists; the volume is "mounted" at this location. This field indicates where the partition is mounted. If a partition exists, but is not set, then you need to define its mount point. Double-click on the partition or click the Edit button.
  • Type : This field shows the partition's file system type (for example, ext2, ext3, ext4, or vfat).
  • Format : This field shows if the partition being created will be formatted.
  • Size (MB) : This field shows the partition's size (in MB).
  • Start : This field shows the cylinder on your hard drive where the partition begins.
  • End : This field shows the cylinder on your hard drive where the partition ends.
Hide RAID device/LVM Volume Group members : Select this option if you do not want to view any RAID device or LVM Volume Group members that have been created.
