Is there a preferred method of formating a hard drive in preparation for a Linux installation only;will any formating command be just as efficient as any other?

You must format to the right partition type.

Such as:
SWAP (nice to have)
LINUX NATIVE (the one you really need)
DOS < 32 (optional)
DOS >= 32 (optional)

Otherwise, the answer is no.
