mformat in fedora 9?

I'm fairly new to linux.. I've played with Ubuntu 7.1 and that's about it. I'm actually in school to get my basic Comp-tia certifications.

Right now I just started my advanced operating system class. In a lab I am doing I'm suppose to learn how to use the mformat. Only problem is that the lab is set-up for a very old fedora... I think it said 6.

It wants me to run an mformat on the floppy but there isn't an mformat on Fedora 9.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

You can probably do what you want with the mkdosfs command:
