maybe multiple select isn't the right way to think of these...
maybe different lists is the way to go
or nested sortable lists..

looking into different options for a sortable list, preferably with multiple select options...
would be nice if click,shift-click worked to select

This is a nice working example, that seems simple enough

(forgot about multiple select at this point though)

other options:

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mklabel mac
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mklabel msdos #is this Master Boot Record?

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary NTFS 20.5kB 2000GB
Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.
Ignore/Cancel? C


examples:

formatted with mac os X: (GUID Partition Table)
---------------------------------------------------
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb print
Model: SAMSUNG HD204UI (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 2000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
1 20.5kB 210MB 210MB fat32 EFI System Partition boot
2 210MB 2000GB 2000GB hfs+ Untitled

looking into Advanced Format drives
wdc.com/advformat

they recommend parted (2.2 and up) instead of fdisk:
parted -v

#this starts in an interactive mode similar to fdisk:
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb


#can also supply commands via command line:

sudo ls #prime sudo

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mklabel gpt
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb print

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb rm 1
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb rm 2

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary NTFS 1MB 2000GB
sudo mkfs.ntfs -L DATA -f /dev/sdb1

or
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary hfs 1MB 2000GB
format on mac

or
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary ext4 1MB 2000GB
sudo mkfs.ext4 -L backups /dev/sdb1

or
sudo mkfs.vfat -n UBUNTU /dev/sdb1
format USB drive


be sure to label the drive externally
when it was first initialized
what file system
capacity (in case it's not clear from the drive)
