How to start disk druid

How do I start disk druid once Linux is already installed? I'm thinking about getting another hard drive for my server but have no idea what to do after I have it installed.

fdisk in linux isnt too bad. I am away from my linux box at the moment. Generally, this is what you would do:

1) fdisk /dev/hdb(?)
2) mkfs --- there are a few options for type (ext2, 3, vfat, etc)
3) edit your mtab/fstab in etc so that your new drive pops up as a folder in /
