2.8 Installing Novell Storage Services

IMPORTANT:You must have an uninitialized or logical disk available. It can contain no other mounted partitions. This configuration cannot be performed on the disk that contains either root (/) or swap.
I find this statement confusing to say the least.

Novell Storage Services must be installed on a device which already contains partitions and has existing NOWS SBE system. As for mounted partitions, root (/), or swap, how can they exist on an "uninitialized" device?

Would it not be less confusing simply to say: "IMPORTANT: NSS Pools must be created on an uninitialized disk or uninitialized logical volume."? Am I missing something?
