Sorry, jumped the gun on that save due to interruption.
After you delete the existing partition, which of course will lose the data, make a single partition covering the whole pendrive and write it to the pendrive.
OK, now you have a partitioned pendrive, but it is not formatted with a filesystem. In DSL, use the mkdosfs command to format (make a DOS FAT16 filesystem) on your partition. Use the Net MAN tool for more info on mkdosfs. Assuming that you have a single partition at /dev/sda1, use
fdisk manual page
mkdosfs manual page
Of course, you could partition with DOS fdisk or the Windows tools. You could even use their format. What fun would that be...
