I purchased and external firewire HD and want to partition it to separate machine backups.

I'm creating 4 partition,using the Disk Utility, on a new Iomega 750GB HD and the message states that its Creating Partition Map and it's been running for a long time.

I'm going to let it continue, but am wondering if I can interrupt it?

How long should this take? There isn't any disk activity going on.
