Parted's not actually that bad. I imagine the command you want is 
'parted $DEVICE mkpartfs primary ext2 0% 100%', where $DEVICE is the 
drive you want to partition. This will also create the filesystem.

If you have X, GParted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/) is much more 
intuitive to use. I'd recommend it over QTParted, which hasn't been 
updated since 2004.
