Formatting a newly created lun

Hi ,

I have created one new lun in my SAN storage and make it visible to my HP servers , but the fdisk -l output is somehow confusing. Do not know what to do next ----------

fdisk  -l /dev/sdo1

Disk /dev/sdo1 (Sun disk label): 64 heads, 32 sectors, 10238 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 bytes

    Device Flag    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System

please help !!!!

Probably you need to use /dev/sdo instead of /dev/sdo1, which likely points to a partition.
# 3  
Actually in case of /dev/sdo, i am getting same type of output which is not showing size of that disk
# 4  
What is your OS and version?
# 5  
Rhel 5 x86_64
# 6  
What do you want to do with this LUN? Do you want to make it part of an LVM configuration?
# 7  
I want to make a mountpoit over it where we can store user data
