http://forums.fedoraforum.org – hello gentlemen, i have an external HD, 700GB, and i need to formatted as fat32. i don't want to use the microsoft windows to do that, because it is weak. i searched inside fedora to find a tool to fromat this HD, but i did not find. i took the mac from my friend, and i have used the disk utilities to format the HD. it was very successful. but i don't want to depend on the others, i have fedora, and i want to do it in fedora. i have searched over the internet, it is saying that we must do the fdisk and then 2 commands more, but i did not get it totaly. could you please tell me how to format a HD, in fedora? is there any easy way like the mac or the windows thanks very much in advance, and regards, (HowTos)
