[Nottingham] Reformatting a second harddrive

I currently have two
internal harddrives on computer.

I want to reformat the
second one and use it to store mainly photos. Would I simply boot up
the computer with the Ubuntu Linux CD (8.04 LTS) in the CD drive and
follow the instructions for partitioning this particular drive? (The
first drive has Ubuntu, and don't want to disturb this).

If so, what do I do
about 'fstab'? Would the CD make all the changes in this file for me?

What sort of file
management would be the best? Ext3?

Are there any other
issues that I might need to consider before proceeding?

Thanking you for your
