Depends... if you just want your data backed-up, copy it to a CD/DVD or USB drive; if you need to back-up EVERYTHING, use something like Acronis to save full image; or do both (just in case).
Installing Sarge (Sarge is a bit old now, better off using Lenny!) will partition and format (clear) the drive during instalation.

To be honest, if you need to ask questions like this you'd be better off with Ubuntu.
