I have a new Fantom hard drive, but ut is formatted with NTFS file system.  How do I format it for my mac mini?  The instructions from Fantom say to use the Disc Utility...but also warn to reformat with HFS.  Will this be done when I chose Disc Utility, or do I need other software?

GarageBand '09, Mac OS X (10.7.4), loops and vocals/guitar, etc
