Symantec has a small utility called Gdisk. It comes with Symantec Ghost. It
formats very quickly, but I am not sure if it will run under
windows(probably not). It is not free either, but I have had good luck with
it. It lets you fdisk and format at the same time. Partition Magic may be
another way to go, and I think there are some free utilities that mimic
partition magic. I found this
the other day when I was looking for something else. I have not tried it yet
If you have the time, I would just stick to fdisk and format though. I
wouldn't take a chance on running some software that I have not tested to do
something as important as setting the foundation for my files.
Just my opinion.
