Can xenium format pre determined sized F: and G:drives, and then the formatted partitions are useable by linux? Because currently I have an alladin xt and im wanting E: Drive as gentoox, 50 gig F: partition for Gentoox Media Center, And the rest of the drive on G: for other things... So my question is, is this possible with xenium?????

I doubt it. Xenium can format F and G if thats what your asking, but so can Evox. I think Gentoox MCE is installed on E & F formated for media anyway.

bucko, never reply to any of my posts ever again, thanks. You didnt answer my question at all. Of course i know evox can format those partitions, im talking about CUSTOM SIZED PARTITIONS. I know xbparitioner can do this, but linux cant use partitions made by xbpartitioner. I have heard that using xenium os that you can make custom partitions that can be used by linux, so to clarify my question even farthur....

Can the xenium os format F and G to any determined size (for example F: drive be 50 gigs, and G: drive be 100 gigs) If it can do this, can linux use those custom partioned F: and G: drives???

You are probably the biggest dork ever, and a stupid one at that. My post has nothing to do with xbpartitioner. It is asking if the xenium os has a feature that is exactly like xbpartitioner, but using a partitioning table useable by linux. How hard is that to understand?

I don't know, i suspect not.

I believe the Xenium normally formats with the standard partition tables, you get the choice of "F only" or "F+G", but its been a while since I formatted an xbox drive, and things may have changed with the latest versions.

Xenium OS does not have the capability to create custom sized partitions. It uses the standard partitioning. Either all additional space on F, or up to 137GB on F and rest on G. Nor does it let you resize C, E, X, Y, or Z.
