Talking

Linux labels harddrives as hda (c) hdb (d) hdc (e)
try cfdisk /dev/hd( b or c depending on which one you want)
Dev hda is the default .

another altenative other than the one mentioned by joe83 (which is the best one), is taking your winxp cd and boot it.. try to run DISKPART..

it's very dynamic and it shows a complete table of all the HDs and partition
BUT as it is in a winxp cd, the linux partitions (ext2, ext3...) will be marked as "unknown"

as you don't have linux in your system yet, at least you'll be able to create the
partitions.
