I've found that the easiest way to create a vfat partition and filesystem is using the 'gparted' application. This provides a nice GUI that shows your USB and HDD devices, and lets you preview changes before committing your actions.

If you don't have 'gparted' installed, you can get it by doing:

yum install gparted

or by using the GUI package manager, sometimes referred to as PackageKit or just "Software" in recent version of Fedora.
