Problem adding a second harddrive

I have loaded up redhat 7.3 with samba & mysql on a 20Gb drive. Now I have decided to add an extra 80Gb drive for extra space for the samba directories. How can I format the drive & repartion my setup?

cfdisk to format. (or better: parted).
Then reconfigure your /etc/fstab while dispatching your folders.
