First find the name of the device (It may be one of /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc etc)

#su
#/sbin/mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdb1

OR
if your disk is too corrupt

#su
#parted /dev/sdb

>p
>help

Make a new msdos partition table
Then make partitions and filesystems within that

You can use gparted or qtparted or fdisk or partedmagic CD too
