Yes I forgot that when you start fdisk the first thing that you have to do is select a disk, then select a partition. Use partition number one. You do not have to delete the existing partition. You can just change the type to 83, then write the partition table to the disk. Then use mkfs.

Don't worry about messing up. As long as you have selected the correct disk you are ok. You could start fdisk as follows to be sure that you have the right disk. Then you just select partition one, change the type to 83, and write the partition table to disk, then quit fdisk.
Code:
fdisk /dev/sdb

You should know, you typed in the "mount" command!

You can see what partitions are mounted by entering the mount command with no parameters.
Code:
mount
/dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
none on /tmp type tmpfs (rw)
Here you can see that I have the third partition of the first hard drive (/dev/hda3) mounted as the root of the file system (/).
