[CentOS] formatting large volume

I just got a new server with a Dell MD-1000 SAS unit and 6-750 gigabyte
drives which are now initializing in RAID 10 which will give me just
about 2 terabytes.

I vaguely recall reading that fdisk wasn't suitable for partitioning and
wonder if I shouldn't be using partd instead. I am also wondering if I
should use lvm or just mkfs to create the filesystem. Anyone have
suggestions before I blunder in?

Thanks

Craig
