My suggestion: avoid that one and use a Windows system to format with FAT32.
This tool thrashed the filesystem of my digital camera twice that much, that not
even a Windows system could recover it. Fortunately the camera of a friend was
able to rescue the card in my camera.

As for your question:

> $ apt-file search mkfs.vfat
> dosfstools: sbin/mkfs.vfat
