Shouldn't be anything special necessary.  I routinely do 1TB and 2TB 
partitions on RAID arrays with CentOS and RHEL.  Your 1TB drive should 
be plug 'n' chug.

Now, as to how to partition it, well, that depends on how you're going 
to use this drive on this system.  Can you give us any details on that 
so we can best advise you?

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
