I need help with Linux. I've never used it before but haver managed a good
I'm using 6.2 and the KDE interface. I have two SCSI drives hooked up to the
system. One is the Linux drive and the other is blank.
I'd like to format the blank one as a HFS volume. I cannot find the icon for
the drive anywhere (can't see it & I've clicked every file icon I can find).

How do I format this second drive as a HFS drive? I've been told you can.
