    Does the new drive show in My Computer.
    If so, right click the new drive and choose format, the next screen will ask which file system to use.

    I hope this helps

    Start by doing an install with XP CD and than select the second drive to creste a partition with the install of XP, after the Partition is created with XP exit the install, Than boot normally, and select the drive in My Computer, right click and formate it there.
