    Hello,

    I'm running windowsXP Home Edition, I'm replacing my old slave drive with a new and bigger drive. I'm in the Disk Management window and I see my new drive but it is unallocated. When I right-click it the window popup with New Partition.

    Do I make the New Partition then Format It?

    Yes that is exactly what you do and where you do it.
