Just start installing XP, during the install it will ask where you want the installation to happen; then you have to create a partition (6-10GB) and then a format (best use NTFS).

When Windows is installed, go to Disk Management and create other partitions and format those. Here you can even Quick Format when you are in a hurry.
For Professional use this isn't a good idea (no checking of disk integrity) !


Ah, it sounds like he is not installing XP and simply wants the extra drive as storage.
