following (as root):
* fire up fdisk (fdisk /dev/hdx, replace x with the correct disk letter) and
hit m+enter for options.
*hit "d" for deleting existing partitions on that disk.
*hit "n" for creating a new partition (make it a primary one)
after creating the new partition, do (again, as root):
mk2tfs -j /dev/hdxx (replace xx with the correct disk and partition numbers.
you'll have yourself a ready to use partition containing ext3 filesystem.
