Default Second HD

I have a Western Digital HD at about 8 GB running XP. I recently connected another HD using the jumpers and stuff and I had set it to slave. Now I want to clear all that is on the second HD. Can I do that while still in windows? If so, can someone explain the process? If not, explain that to me too. Thanks for your help.
