Surprising Reserch Topic questions - Question:how to Creating a vfat filesystem

We'll now create the FAT32 (vfat) filesystem on /dev/sda9.

[root@echidna ~]# mkfs -t vfat /dev/sda9
mkfs.vfat 3.0.9 (31 Jan 2010)
[root@echidna ~]# blkid /dev/sda9
/dev/sda9: LABEL="" UUID="CF72-99A8" TYPE="vfat"

UUIDs for vfat filesystems are shorter than normal UUIDs and therefore somewhat less likely to be unique. If you want a label instead, use the dosfslabel command. Labels for DOS partitions are limited to 11 characters in length.
