I created a bootable flash drive with Chromium OS installed on it. However, Chromium OS only needs about 4GB of space, and my flash drive is 8GB.

I wanted to make the rest of the 4GB a FAT32 partition, but when I look at GParted, I have 12 different partitions on the flash drive with unallocated space scattered everywhere.

I made the bootable flash drive with Ubuntu Linux's usb-imagecreator. I run Ubuntu Linux 11.04 x86_64 and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

If any of you have experience with this, any help would be appreciated.

In theory, you'd have to flip the 'removable media' bit before you can partition it (which convinces windows its a regular USB HDD) - supposedly lexar bootit can do it, but its nearly impossible to find.
