How to Create New Partition

Hi there
Background:
New to Solaris - installed VM Ware on a vista laptop, then installed Solaris 10 using ISO file.
My aim, is to get to stage where I can install Oracle 11g Database.

Question:
See attached file.
Simple question, how do I create a new partition say called "Oracle" 30G in size at / ?

Should mention the VM File set at 8G.

Thanks...

How to Create New Partition

Hi there

Steps
1.add a new virtual disk to vmware with the needed size - ok 20g
2.boot your solaris vm - restarted - ok
3.enter "format" inside a terminal (as root). you should see the new disk

- only 1 disk showing. See attached pics.

I assumed I see 2 disks, not 1.

What have I missed ???

Code:
devfsadm -v
