    how to format a usb hard drive in fc3

    such that it can also be read/write in windows? Maybe FAT32 is a suitable format but I dont know how to do that in command line. Thanks.

    RPM search for QTparted
    install it
    then create a new partition... BE SURE TO umount ALL EXISTING PARTITIONS OF THAT DRIVE BEFORE!!!
