Suse 12.1 Help using Disk Utility

I'm using Suse12.1 64bit with Gnome Desktop.
I am trying to use a portable hard disk (USB) that was used on an Apple
Mac using the Disk Utility.
The device mounts okay but is Read Only.
I am now trying to format or set the device for write/read usage.

Disk Utility won't let me Format the drive - says the drive is busy
whatever I try.

I managed to Edit Partition and set up an EFI System Partition with a
Type Linux Basic Data Partition.
This EFI partition is only 210 Mb in size (it didn't give me an option
to set a size. But I can use this EFI device as a data work space.
Now I can't delete this partition.
Help. Is there a user manual anywhere for Disk Utility.

Sorry, I might look a bit dumb, but what Disk Utility?
We normaly repartition, create file systems and organise mounting here
using YaST > System > Partitioning.
There are also tools like Gparted.
And on the low level you can use -fdisk-, -mkfs- and edit -/etc/fstab-.
As you say I know  about a few ways to do these things, but the general
term Disk Utility does not trigger anything for me.

I would have booted from the openSUSE live CD/DVD, and used the Disk
Utility there.
