New HD question...

I have just installed a new internal HD in the lower HD bay. I am just about to zero it and partition it. I cannot find any detailed explanations about how exactly to do this in disk utility. From what I have found, it sounds as though I can partition and erase the drive at the same time - however, if I want to write zeros to it, do I have to do that first, or do I have the option to write zeros when I chose partition.....?

Also, I'm quite sure I read somewhere in the SD manual that it is best, when using Sandbox to name the partition for the original - Macintosh HD. Of course, my other HD is already named that - should I name this new one Macintosh HD2...or is having the same name for both internals ok?

Also, can I use my computer while it's writing zeros...or should I have all applications closed.
