Formatting external HDD in XP

Go into: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management and click on the unformatted external HDD, then Format.

You may not be able to create paritions greater than 120GB (possibly due to IDE limitations rather than limitations with NTFS). In this case use a Partitioning tool to split your HDD in two.
