I want to clean instal windows vista ultimate 32 bit on my new hard drive.
I need to know if I need to boot my with my other HD to format it before installation. Here is the new hard drive that I am going to install Vista on:

If I do need to format my hard drive, should I just use windows' own formatting tools or some thir party application? And what are the diferences between the different file systems (etc. fat32) and which one is preferrable?

Please contribute if you have anything that will help
