This is true.  My thought originally had been that since the drive was just 
going to hold data, it wasn't all that necessary to divide it up into 
partitions.  I figure I've got quite a bit to learn about this process, 
though.  As evidenced by the output of parted, though, it's a moot point; the 
drive is hosed anyway.

Side note: I had left the drive in my computer as a slave drive for awhile 
while working on other projects this afternoon, even though it wasn't 
working.  When I shut down my computer just now and removed the drive, I 
discovered that it was hot; almost too hot to touch, in fact.  I can't 
imagine that this is good.  None of the other components were overly warm.
