    Well, if it is already slaved and is being read by Windows, then you can just right click the drive in My Computer and choose the format option. Otherwise you can open up the disk management tools from Control Panel and either format and/or repartition the drive. If the drive is not being picked up by Windows, then you've got another problem to fix first.
