Actually, NOT easy. "format my SUSE" is totally ambiguous....
Do you have SUSE installed and running?
What exactly do you want to format? A hard drive?

3.5
You did not answer my question.....I will guess: You want to format the hard drive so you can install FC4.

The installer will do all of this automatically. Boot up with the install CD and follow the instructions.

Just repartition your drive when installing FC4.
