Someone feel free to correct me but i believe you use the
mkfs command.
The command would look something like this

mkfs.vfat (device name)
OR
mkfs -t vfat (device name)


EX: mkfs.vfat /dev/hda1 OR mkfs -t vfat /dev/hda1

Good Luck

Do you want to format "a" partition with fat32 (see above) or do you want to format your linux partition fat32 (ill advised)?

If you have a new enough kernel (2.6.23+ ?), you can.

Based on OP's other thread, we are looking at homework. (Preparing for RHCE)

For Varunkant: Which version of RedHat? Have you looked to see if it gets mounted automatically?

Depending on the system, sometimes the mount point gets setup and all you have to do is enter "mount <nameofmountpoint>"

What text are you using in your study?
