Partitioning with fdisk

I've installed a second hard drive in my machine, as a slave on the same channel as C: drive. I'm going to use the second HDD as a backup. It's a 60Gb drive and I want to partition it into two 30Gb drives.

I have got into a right mixup with Fdisk. Could anyone please take me through the exact procedure for doing this partitioning please? I'm particularly confused about whether I should be selecting primary or extended DOS partition, etc.

Thanks

You would be better of with Partition Magic it would make the job easy for you

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't really want to buy more software if I can avoid it - I know fdisk will do the job for me, once I can understand it!
