I would have to format that hard disk using fdisk I think ?
No! Only, if you would want to create "fdisk partitions" on that disk, but I think, if you create something like a 10G disk, you could easily use it as a whole disk. Then ZFS don't need that disk to be formatted in any way. Just create the zpool...
