A little bit more information would be helpful.
If adding as a second hard drive for programs or storage, go to disk manager, if it shows up there, simply create partition(s) and format.
If using for the primary hard drive, put in Windows 7 install disk, if it is recognized, choose Custom>Partition/Format and proceed.
If it is not recognized, go into BIOS and make sure it is recognized there and make the appropriate adjustments and begin again.
(you did not mention RAID so I will leave it out)

That is the most I can supply without more information. Most people these days are using SATA drives for many reasons and most of my experience is with PATA and SATA drives, but much is similar. If you need more help supply all details and there will be someone who can help.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Actually you have one of two ways to format a scsi disk. One can do a low level format by using the scsi card tools or software tools that came with the adapter or drive. A simple high level format would be like any other.

We tend to always do a low level or scsi disks. They last longer in our opinion.
