+Unless this has already been done, you must partition, optionally
+encrypt, and then format the target partitions.
 Preferably, assign partitions a label so that you can easily and
 reliably refer to them in @code{file-system} declarations (@pxref{File
 Systems}).  This is typically done using the @code{-L} option of
 @command{mkfs.ext4} and related commands.
+A typical command sequence may be:

+# mkfs.ext4 -L my-root /dev/mapper/my-partition
