How do I create a NTFS file system?

Specs: Windows Xp Home Edition, Intel Celeron/ 512mb
I have a slave hard drive in my computer and it was from my neighbor so it still had files on it, so I installed Kill Disk to format it and now I need to put a NTFS file system on it so I can use it. I have a Dell Dimension 2400 with Xp Home Edition, 512mb RAM, 40gb master hard drive, 40 gb slave drive, an Intel Celeron processor and just incase needed both hard drive`s jumpers are set to cable select.

Control Panel>Admin Tools>Computer Management>Disk Management.

You can partition and format the second drive ( should show as Disk 1 ) from there.

Your original drive should show as Disk 0 and contain your C partition.

Thanks that worked. I looked in the help of KillDisk and it says to use the hard drive you have to partition it.
