WhatOnce you want to do is boot intothis, you can install the OS CD, go under Utilities, find Disk Utility andon the new hard drive. Under Partition, check what it says under Options. If it selected the right one under here, don't change it. Format the drive and it will show as a usable drive. That should do the trick.
