with RH 8.0 it should detect it when you plug it in I think and as you if you want to partition it, at least RH 7 does.

1. Use fdisk or cfdisk to create partitions.
2. create filesystems for the the drive using mkfs.
3. create mount points for each partition
4. add entry(s) in /etc/fstab to automount on bootup.
