Partitioning an added Hardrive for Mdrake Linux

I added an 8.4 gig hardrive to my Win95 box to be used mostly for Linux which I'm trying to install using downloaded Mandrake 7.0. When I installed  the drive, I just made 1 DOS partion of 1 gig as drive d:. I'm hoping Mandrake will help me re-partition the disk for Linux - at least the remaining 7.4 gig. I'm at the point of booting the hd.img floppy and trying to get it to find the Mandrake tree I downloaded or maybe I will end up downloading the iso file or booting from the network, or buying the CDROM.
Question:  Do I need to re-partition for Linux before I worry about getting the image floppy to boot and go through its paces, or will Mandrake lead me through partitioning if I can ever get everything lined up so it works?
Any help or comment is appreciated. If I'm not making sense, ask me questions or re-educate me.
Thanks, Will Cardwell

All linux distros will help you partition _unpartitioned_ space of your disks, so this will not be a problem.
