How do I create a partition on a pen drive ?

Hello, I have purchased a Kingston 4 gb pen drive and I want to create a new partition on a pen drive. I wish to partition it into 3 partitions; how do I do it, without any problem. I tried it from "Manage disks", but failed to make partition on it.I would appreciate any information you give me.

Thank you

I recommend Parted Magic 2.0 Live CD for partitioning the Pen drive. And you might want to consider using YAFFS2 file system for the pen drive, as its much better and long life inducing than FAT32.

Plug in your pen drive. Boot your PC with Gparted. Partition your pen drive, its really that simple, it will show up in gparted. It is GUI program so don't worry.
