format usb flash drive

How does one format a USB flash drive to ext 3 on the nslu2?. When I use the web interface it says that it is not a HDD and wont format.  I will need it formatted as ext3 so that I can install unslung.

Yep - I'm having the exact same problem. I'm not sure if the size of the usb flash drive is the problem - mine is only 256mb.
