How do you create different drives on a computer hard disk?

You do it by creating partitions on your hard drives. Partitions

are typically created before the hard drive is formatted. Another

option is to use a program like Partition Magic to edit partitions

on your hard drive. You generally don't want to play around with

your partitions too much after you have your OS up and running. Any

error may cause you to have to reinstall everything.
