The only points I would add are
(1) It is worth thinking a little how you want to divide the disk.
Do you really want 2 enormous partitions?
In particular, do you intend to run Linux from this disk,
or from the first disk?
(2) You don't actually have to partition the whole disk -
you can always add partitions at the end afterwards.
(3) There could conceivably be some problems with this disk under Linux
(depending on your computer),
so make sure fdisk can see it all before proceeding.
