Partitioning just divides up the hard disk. Inodes, etc. are created when the file system is created. There's a general overview of superblocks which talks about this at http://www.linuxsa.org.au/tips/superblocks.html. There are lots of more detailed articles if you search google with terms like "linux filesystem inode superblock"
