formatting under linux

I set the partition type to c with fdisk
I formated with mkdosfs -F 32 /dev/sda1
Read and writing to the file system seem to work fine while connected to
However niether rockbox nor archos seem to recognize the file system.
Rockbox starts up fine but does shown any files and says "save failed no
partition?" to just about everything
Archos starts up with a "File system error, No valid FAT16/32 file
system found, Please format drive"
Is it possible to format the drive properly from linux?
If so how? I could find any good info googling.
Thanks for you help,
