Note that Ive not actually done this, but I'd suggest, since you're on FC4, check to see if you have QTParted installed. (If you do, it should be in your "System Tools" menu.) QTParted is a "clone" of "Partition Magic" which wasn't available (or I didn't find) when I was setting up my Linux systems.
If it isn't installed, do a "yum install qtparted
" to install it.
Then start it, point it at your /dev/hdb
and follow the menus to delete the partition, recreate it as an ext3 partition, and format it.
