Newbie: partition (or not) on my new ext drive?

Hi all,

I have one shiny new 300gig Firewire drive that I want to use both for backup of my Powerbook (120gig unformatted) AND as an extra workhorse.

Looking at your utility, it seems like a good thing to use... but I want to trial it first. Meanwhile before I do anything, I need to decide whether to leave the 300gig external drive as one large single partition or to divide it into 2 - one partition for the Powerbook backup (<120gig), the other for day to day tasks.
Whats the best approach? (or perhaps Pros/Cons between my alternatives like just using a disk image without partitions).

thanks in advance
