    Show you how to format a USB Flash - FAT32.
    USB Flash is defined as /dev/da0 (and /dev/da0s1 - sector). How to format it to FAT32?

    How to clean a flash drive, I realized - but change the file system does not work:
    (it is # mount /dev/da0s1 /mnt)

    Code:
    umount /mnt 
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/da0
