Indeed you need to install a filesystem on it.
use mkfs
You should do something along the lines of
Code:
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hdc
And then add the new partition to /etc/fstab.

The things you should add is:
filesystem mount-point fs-type options dump fsck-order
For example:
Code:
/dev/hdc     /home          ext3      defaults    1       1
