I am not completely certain what you are trying to accomplish.

Are you trying to create a partition, for just the os (and install programs elseware) and somehow lock it down.

or

partition disc the OS is on

or ..?

If you have a hdd loaded with a operating system and wish to add another partition you could use G-Parted.

There is an excellent tutorial which can be found here.

its for a security project for my work stations in which data that is created from say, an application can not be stored on the hard drive as there is no area for it to be stored. Instead that data is forced to be stored on a server.
