How to recheck bad clusters

I remember back in DOS days there were a few
programs that would recheck "bad" cluster to see
if they could be "good"...  With the advent of
FAT32 I need to rid one of my partitions of "bad"
clusters without a doing a LL format...  Is there a program
out there that will confirm whether a cluster is
still bad? or, can you tell FAT32 to skip the bad cluster
check since all the "bad" clusters are in empty areas?

Thanks, but I was hoping for a none "out of pocket" fix...  if you know what I mean  :-)
