Re: How to format a USB drive in Linux?

You can do this using the fdisk command. Just type fdisk, followed by the name of the device you would like to format. You can find out the name of your USB device by looking at the last few lines of the /var/log/messages file after you plug in the USB device.

More info about fdisk:
