HELLO, I am building a new computer and I just ordered two 1TB seagate HD's. I want to know if Windows XP Pro will format the drives on installation. I have never had a Hard drive of this size and I am wondering if I need to take special steps.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
XP only format the partition where you install the OS, but you can format the other partitions from the disk manager without problems.
