if you are in xp, like me, then just click on these things:
start -> control panel -> (if you have a category view control panel, click performance and maintenance) -> administrative tools -> computer management. in the new window go to storage -> disk magement. fin the hardrive you want to split, right click on it, then click "delete partition" (warning: back up everything on it first or you will be sorry). then right click on it and make a new partition, make one 250 GB fat32, and repeat. it will now act like 2 hdds.
if you are in linux, install Gparted and follow basically the same steps. mac sucks so i cant help you there

I partitioned a 500gb Seagate Freeagent Go to where the first partition is FAT32 (for homebrew, emulators, etc.) and the second partition is WBFS. I used a free program called Compuapps Swissknife to delete the whole drive partition first, then created the first partition as FAT32 set to ACTIVE and primary. Then I made the second partition FAT32 primary. After making sure that Windows assigned each partition a proper drive letter, I used WBFS Manager 3.0.1 to format partition 2 to WBFS. I'm using Windows XP sp3.
This method has worked perfectly for me, and all homebrew on the FAT32 partition works perfectly. I prefer WBFS, simply because it compresses the ISOs when added, allowing more games on the drive. I haven't read much on loading Wii ISOs from a NTFS partition, but I imagine that you'd have to scrub each game if you wanted fit the same amound of games as a WBFS partition. Could someone correct me if I'm wrong?
I prefer this route, since I don't have to decide how much to split the partitions into, as all home brew uses fat32, and this allows for the full space to be just that. meaning down the road, i won't run out of space for either partition, and will never require a "re-split".
and yes, you can reconvert them back to isos anytime you like.
