With Disk Druid, you have to create the partitions, assign its filesystem types and mount points. You are encouraged to create a small (~30M) /boot, a swap, and /, /usr, /var, /tmp, /home, the size of each one according to the use you want for you machine.

With fdisk, you will have to create each partition and change its type (82 for linux swap, 83 for linux native, others...). Remember to create an extended partition after having 3 primary partitions, so you can create more. Exit with "w" to write the partition table to the disk. After you are done, you will be sent to the disk druid again, to assing mounting points to each partition, and to indicate which ones need to be formatted.

fdisk is more crude and does not avoid DiskDruid, but it is the one way to garantee the position of each partition on the disk. Sometimes this is needed; when it is not, use DiskDruid.
