What are the advantages of creating partitions on disk drives? How would I go about doing this? I run my disk drives without partitions is this bad?

the advantage is seen from security point of view. if u partition the HDD, u may install ur applications in one of the partition drive and the O.S in other partition. so, if sth wrong happens u r only going to format ur O.S. not ur applications.
and besides the other advantage is ur data will be left undeleted if it is placed somewhere other than the O.S's partition.
the steps are easy
boot from the CD,(containing the Operating System) then it is a matter of pressing Enter.
at some time it will ask u to create partition.
just create it and allocate it with some memory
