    See http://www.macworld.com/article/132140/www.idgconnect.com for details. If you have an Intel machine, use the GUID Partition Map Scheme. For a PPC machine, use Apple Partition Map (APM). Then format to Mac OS Extended (Journaled), also known as HFS+. MBR partition will cause problems and should not be used for Time Machine.
