Default create a FAT32 partition and format it.


I added a second disk to my OpenBSD 4.7 machine.
i done this :
fdisk -e w
I created a first full partition type : 0b

when i type : fdisk wd1, i have the following
0: 0B 0 0 1 - 41609 15 63 [ 0: 41942880 ] Win95 FAT-32

Now, i suppose i need a slice to format it.
disklabel -E wd1
I created a slice a but FSTYPE is 4.2BSD. I'm wrong somewhere.
disklabel wd1a
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize cpg]
a: 41943040 0 4.2BSD 2048 16384 1
c: 41943040 0 unused

How can i proceed to format a disk FAT32 ?
