How do I format other partitioned drives?
How do I format some of the partitioned drives on my system?

i.e. I'm trying to convert a fat32 to ext 2filesystem but want to format it first.

Need to be root and, I think, have e2fsprogs installed. Something like that.

To change to the root account, use these commands from your user account. Note the change in the prompt.

[fancy@tinwhistle fancy]$ su -
[root@tinwhistle root]#
