Well to partition your sd card there is an option in recovery, but when you partition your card if the rom you flash has apps 2 sd enabled it puts the data/apps onto the partition on your sd card. Saves space on internal memory

So this means the phone has more internal memory?
Or is it still on card?

Also, say i have 32gig card, and i partition 5 gig,
can i them install widgets and stuff to that, and it will work perfectly?
Thanks,

It opens up more internal memory by moving things to the card.

It basically fools your phone into thinking part of the sd card is internal memory and putting things there
