formatting SD card

Hi all,


I am new to linux ...and got stuck in the first stage of using the imx development board. I have an imx 233 eval board. I have followed the steps in AN3875 to install debian linux on a vmware virtual machine. Now i am following the "i.MX23 EVK Linux User’s Guide" to format my SD card. I am using a 2gb micro SD card from kingston.


As per the tutorial, I am using "fdisk /dev/sdb1" for disk partition, when i use the "w" i am getting the error - "partition table failed with error - 22" , but when i use the command "fdisk -l /dev/sdb1" i could see the partition table.

So i proceed to the next step of using the "mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdb1p3" command to format the ext2 file type. But I am getting this error"Could not stat /dev/sdb1p3 -- No such file or directory" ....



Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance ...
