How to format and partitionate a disk?



Hi,

  did I get it right that there is no tool available at installation
time to partitionate a hard drive?

  ---

  Another question. I have a box with SuSE left and want to upgrade it
to debian. The box has now two hds and I want to keep the second drive
for the time beeing and after the new system is alive and kicking I will
format it. What do I need to do to get the drive formated and to install
a journaled file system? What journaled file systems are mature enough
to be used? reiserfs?

  I don't expect exhaustive answers, though I would appreciate them ;-),
but would like to get some pointers to specific documentation.


Cheers,
Mariano
