Do you have free space on your drives to make the partitions?
If not then you will need to shrink the existing partition(s). You did not state what was now installed on the server. Do you want to delete?
You can get the drive information with 'fdisk -l' or just do a 'fdisk dev/your_device'. You can then delete, create, modify as you wish. You then write the table to the device. I would reboot to update the partition table then create the filesystem of choice before running setup. This way you find any errors. Don't forget to create a swap parition. Check the swap to make sure you don't have errors.
You can 'man mke2fs', man mkswap' and 'fdisk' to get a feel. I prefer ext3 for my systems but your flavor may vary.
