    Format means to completely "reset" a drive to a state where no data exists on the drive. Is this what you mean? If so, just insert your Mac OSX cd and follow the instructions.

    Do you perhaps mean partition?

    You could do Erase and Install and check Customize button to select the Applications you want to install.
