How to partition and formation the new WD HDD?

Hi, Could anyone tell me how to partition and formation the new WD HDD ? Since, all WD HDD is used advanded formation technology. But I am still using WinXP SP3. Does it possible to use in WinXP SP3 ? Will it degarde the performance in WinXP environment ? I looked that other competitors with the smart sectors alignment embedded HDD processor. Their HDD can be work normally in WinXP. Could WD HDD also add the similar technology to her HDD ? Thanks, koklee
