Assuming your running XP (might work in Vista)

Right click My Computer, choose "Manage".
expande "storage", then select disk management.

Now on the right displays all your HDD's.

Select your removable drive in the list. Right click it and select New Partition.

You can also format the drive from this screen if you want to.
