Comment (by Luposian):

 Right now, the drive is zero'd (zeros written across the entire drive).
 When I go into Haiku disk utility, it sees only the main drive with no
 partitions or format information at all.  Can I use Haiku's disk utility
 to do what I need (if so, what do I do, in what order?) or do I need to
 partition/format the disk from another OS first?

 If the latter (partition/format drive in another OS first), when I come
 back to Haiku, what do I do, in what order?

 I hate to sound so dense, but running Active@ KILLDISK takes over an hour
 each time I run it and I only use it, to make sure the drive is completely
 clean, with no other partition/format info munging things up when I try
 installing Haiku again.

 I never used to have this kinda trouble before... why now?  I used to be
 able to just go in, initialize a partition for BFS, and install Haiku.
 Simple as that.  Now it doesn't work that easily and I can't figure out
