diskutil usage (mini man page available)
Authored by: crkrenn on May 03, '03 10:45:29AM

Just type "diskutil" without any arguments to list the options available
with diskutil besides "enableJournal" and "disableJournal".

"diskutil list" and "diskutil info /" are other useful commands and don't
require root access.


PS. Many other Un*x commands (particularly GNU versions) also will
give usage information if they are also typed with no arguments.

diskutil man page
Authored by: IslandDan on Dec 10, '03 01:14:54AM

There is now a man page for diskutil in Panther. One neat thing to do is to create a removable drive like a USB Flash drive with a Windows partition map that will work on both Windows and OS X with one DOS partition and one HFS+ partition.

Ex: diskutil partitionDisk '/dev/diskN' 2 MBRFormat MS-DOS DOS 20M HFS+ HFS 20M

where diskN is the correct drive (N is replaced with the correct number). Use the df command to fine the diskN for a volume.

Be _real_ careful!
