from my experience, and my friends, most people with FWD attempt drifting by using the handbrake. this will get you into a drifting motion, as it will break traction on your rear wheels and pull the rear around. HOWEVER, this is done by locking the wheels, and can cause flatspots in your tire tread! I have a friend with a civic that insists on handbrake drifting occasionally, and his tires wear in a horrible way.

Personally, I think drifting is best left to front engine-rear drive cars. Besides, it's meant to be a show-off/having fun way of driving, so if you're actually racing it's mostly impractical.
