For starters, don't tell us to be quick. Everybody who is on here (including the moderators) are all putting in their own time and we don't give a crap about your schedule. Thanks.

Secondly, what exactly do you mean by "java file system"? Do you want to write a filesystem in Java? Do you want to write a file browser in Java? Do you want to write a psuedo-filesystem for browsing the contents of Java archives? The question is awfully vague. I'll assume you want to write a file system driver in Java because it sounds sort of like that. I don't know Java but I'd imagine writing Java code (your driver) to plug into C code (the kernel) and be efficient would be hard and mightn't make a lot of sense. Maybe you could take a look at FUSE, it has Java bindings and should make it pretty easy to get off the ground.

I don't think most of us understands what you are trying to do. Are you trying to read/write files using Java (Java IO/Streams) or are you really trying to create a file system with Java (like NTFS or FAT). Give some examples and check the Java API for IO.

Let's see, you post at 10:30 (GMT)--two responses with requests for clarification, but no response from you over 3 hours later. Guess you weren't in such a hurry after all....
Have you looked at mkfs and its cousins? Start with "man mkfs".

Oh--I almost forgot--we're "doin" GREAT!!!!

Especially since a search would have given the original poster the answer already, as partitioning and formatting has already been addressed on here many, many times. If one is in such a hurry, why doesn't one search?
