Same here, regarding formatting.  Here is a good Step by Step on how to 
connect multi-port flash card readers on linux.  It should work with any
reader.  I have tried it with the SanDisk 2 port reader and am now using a
Viking IntelliFlash 6 port reader.

The palm pilot itself is capable of formatting SD cards, and I prefer to
use its format feature because I'm more confident that the result will
work with the palm pilot :)

The "Card Info" program that came with my palm pilot (in Applications,
category "System") lets you format SD cards, and I figure the less
options it offers me (eg format types), the less I can mess up.
