    /Applications/Utilities/DiskUtility.app
    Select your disk in the left hand panel
    NB this assumes you're booting from the install DVD or from some other external disk:
    you cannot format your boot disk :geek:

    Select Partition, Volume Scheme -> 2 Partitions
    Below the panel showng the partitions is your Options... button

    NB even if you already have 2 partitions, you cannot change the partition scheme
    while the selection at top remains at Current
