Default [SOLVED] mbr/pbr question or problem

This may be primarily an OpenBSD question.
I had an extended fat32 partition I used for music files. I moved the files and formatted the partition for ext2fs to install linux. I then added some files to it, but then didn't like the way that distro ran, so I moved the files back to a different partition and formatted the partition to what it was before, fat32.
I thought that would be easier and quicker than deleting everything.
Now, when I boot back into OpenBSD, and mount the partition, it shows the files that were there when it was first fat 32 and used by OpenBSD!
The partition size is the same and shows 2.5 gig used. Only difference is that one old directory now shows as a file, not a directory.
I've basically formatted that partition twice since it was first used bye OpenBSD.
How do I repair it so that OpenBSD shows a blank/clean partition?
