SCSI w/Linux Can't partition

I bought a used Seagate 10k Ultra2 SCSI drive from a friend and he was running Linux on it.
When I installed it and tried to partition it, I was unable to do so. I didn't get any software with it,
but when I tried to use the software from my other drives to partition, (Maxtor & W.D.)it says that it doesn't
recognize the partition and won't let me reformat to install windows.
Is this because of the linux being on there or because I am using an ATA disk program.
Forgive my ignorance, I have never used SCSI before.
If I need to use DOS FDISK, how would I go about it?
I plan on running win98 or WinME on the drive.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
