new to me. My question is as follows I need to partition my application disk
(which is a 6Gb) into 3 2Gb drives. So I created a entry in the /etc/disktab
file with the new partitions and off I went to newfs the disk. But it didn't
work since it is not looking in the disktab file. The command that I was
trying was "newfs -v -L /dev/rdsk/c0t1d1 SEAGATE_ST32151N_500MB" (I know that
there is a -F option for 10.X and I tried that along with all the other
options). Any insight into this would be appreciated.

Create a physical volume( pvcreate )
Create a volume group and allocate the disk to the group ( vgcreate )
Create 3 2gb logical volumes ( lvcreate ).
You may need other LVM commands to make this work. Hopefully it will work with
a 6gb drive.

at first select "Disks and FileSystems"
after this you can choose the "File systems" topic.
and with the Menu "List" or "Action" you can do your request.
