why would you remove a file system?
the only way to really do this would
be to do a low level format. if your intent is to replace the file system, use one of the mk* commands to replace the current ext2fs with another one.

mkdosfs - will format a device with the
FAT file system

mke2fs - will format a device for ext2 file system
