Basic question hard drive

I'd like to get a hard drive for the Pi, and have noted that it needs a powered drive

I'm looking at this one
Buffalo 2TB Drivestation - HD-LB2.0TU2-UK - USB 2.0
http://www.ebuyer.com/255189-buffalo-2tb-drivestation-hd-lb2-0tu2-uk-usb-2-0-hd-lb2-0tu2-uk

My (very beginner's) question is - can I use this - and format it (assume Linux) to work with the Pi?
I'm not sure even what to look for!
many thanks
