ThinkPad X61 creating partition during restore/recovery



I had a ThinkPad X61. Recently, I upgraded my hard disk and need to reinstall the OS and drivers. I only had 1 Rescue and Recovery CD and 6 Product Recovery CD. 


I wanted to create a new partition (DSmiley Happy, but during the recovery/restore process, I was not given a chance to create or configure disk partition. 


Is there a configuration during recovery/restore process that allows me to create partition? Is there any workaround or method to achieve 2 partition? 


Thanks in Advance =)

you can't create separate partition using the recovery media or its associated recovery process.
