I tried to do like suggested in the other thread, but I still have problems!
one question: to format the hdb2 partition with vfat filesystem, I have to do it before the system boot (with fdisk running from a boot floppy for example), or I can do it also after the boot, form the Linux shell? (I done in this way yesterday)
this because I tried both these command:
mkfs -t vfat /dev/hdb2
mkdosfs -F 32 /dev/hdb2
... but when I run these commands from the shell (I unmounted the relevant partition before to do that), the process stop immediately (with NO errors, it just tells me mkfs version and other information), but I think is impossible that the format process takes just 1 second! I think the format process doesn't start at all...
what do you think about that?
bye and thanks in advance!
