Hey. I was wondering if you can partition a USB flash drive. I intend to get one, but there are two things I want to do - I want to load DamnSmallLinux on it, and I want to use it for saving files and stuff.

Saving files I need it for windows, so Fat32. DSL needs 50mb or so to be a hard drive. I was just wondering if this was possible. If not, I can just buy two smaller ones.. but one would be easiest.

Thanky :- ]

I can partition my 1gb sandisk thumb drive, and I use Fat 32 (so it works better with macs...)
