Formatting partitions


can anyone tell me how to format unallocated space on a disk,

i have two partitions on the disk:

Partition1: unalocated
Partition2: NTFS

i don't want it to touch the NTFS partition but to format the unallocated partition.

There's probably many options here. I would use the GParted bootable CD. Nice graphical interface where you can choose to do as you wish with one or more partitions. Have a look see here . You will want the live CD.
