Is there a LINUX equivalent to the DOS format command or is there some special process I need to follow in order to remove slackware from my system.


To remove slackware in favour of Debian?  Just boot off from a
Debian floopy or cdrom and don't forget to 'create file system'
on the old disks.  You may want to re-partition, too.  There
is no need to format the disk before the above two.
