[all variants] Formatting Drive Question

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am formatting a few drives and was told I should use fat32 since they're USB flash drives. My question is I don't see a mkfs.fat32 option but I do see the following: Code: mkfs          mkfs.bfs      mkfs.cramfs  mkfs.ext2    mkfs.ext3    mkfs.ext4    mkfs.ext4dev  mkfs.minix    mkfs.msdos    mkfs.vfat Can someone please tell me what the difference is between formatting a flash drive with 'msdos', 'vfat', or 'fat32' (which I don't even see)?
