hard drive setup

I just ran f disk on my second harddrive, 8.1 GB.
I have set no partitions yet.
I did not enable large disk detection, and therefore, it can only set 2
active partitions.
If I enable large drive detection, I believe it will be setting it to FAT
Will this have an adverse effect on installing Linux?
And can someone give me their preferred partition sizes and number of
partitions for an 8.1 GB drive?
