preparing my hard drive

I am getting closer to installing RedHat.
I have downloaded the 8.0 ISO's and made CD images.
But since I ran F Disk, without setting any partitions, neither CMOS or
windows recognizes the 8 GB hard drive.
I tried running FIPS, but it says that it can only partition a DOS drive.
* Will Linux recognize this drive when I begin to install Linux, and will it
format & partition the drive?
