    First of all... Welcome to Mac ;)!!

    The disk formats you are talking about are the native Mac OS X disk formats. In other words, it's the format you will need to install Mac OS X on a Hard Drive. The main one (Mac OS Extended (Journaled)) is what your Hard Drive needs to be to run OS X. Free space is totally unformatted, empty space that's not used on the actual HD. If you go into disk utility, you can pull down your HD so you don't have any. This may help you...

    To install Mac OS X, simply put the disk in and click "Install". It then reboots and installs. What type of machine are you trying to install on?

    What do you mean by BIOS- like a terminal window?
