MacOS X, iBook and Floppies - Mac Portable

I purchased a refurbished USB floppy drive from Smart Disk at a great price. It arrived via UPS this afternoon. I noticed something about using it on the iBook under MacOS X (Jaguar): I cannot find any command/menu item to reformat/erase a floppy disk. Am I missing something here?...

    It arrived via UPS this afternoon. I noticed something about using it on the
    iBook under MacOS X (Jaguar): I cannot find any command/menu item to
    reformat/erase a floppy disk. Am I missing something here?

    Does the floppy show up if you use Disk Utility which is found here

    Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility

    If so you could use the options under the Erase tab
