partition-management == includes formatting
Or do I view that wrong
=> I think (not 100% sure) that you also can manage it via PCC (PCLinuxOS Control Center) (blue circle with the tools in it - you can find it in your panel)
What formatting do you like on your USB
: FAT32, EXT4, EXT3, NTFS, ...?
=> do you need to use it on Windows...? Then I think the most safe option is formatting it under that Windows (using its own format then.....), but normally it can also be done under PCLinuxOS
If there's something you don't understand, ask it
