      Which OS are you using to partition the disk?
      Windows server, Windows XP, Windows Vista?

          likely it just needs formatting

          and a drive letter.

          Go to control panel — administraive tools — computer management — disk management

          you should see the second drive there, and action items that can be done to it

          Format new partitions

          The C: drive (1st partition) would have been formatted automatically when you installed XP.

          You need to load Disk Management console and select the 2nd partition and format it and once that is done, it will appear in explorer.

      What operating system or systems?
      Will there be more than one? (Windows/Linux)
      What versions? (Windows XP, Vista, 98, ME)

      How many partitions will you need for each OS?

      Is there old data on the Hard Drive you need to save?

      For Dos ,Windows 95, 98, ME you used Fdisk to create partitions.
      For Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista it is different.
      Same for Linux and other OS.
