if you are able to partition a compact flash drive like anyother drive you can use  fdisk

a NTFS partition is type 07 and a FAT16 partition is a 06, Win95FAT32 = 0B.
If you havent got fdisk go to source forge to get the some partitioning software

sorry misread

Do you know mean HPFS because that is the only other file system I have seen and HPFS is the same type code as NTFS which is 07

Nope, s/he means HTFS, and... unfortunately the only working implementation for that filesystem (in linux) has been discontinued (all the links to the company making it leads to .... somewhere else...). So for HTFS the answer is basically "no". (See: http://www.aplawrence.com/Bofcusm/2450.html and nothe the conclusion at the end... CrosStor seemingly out of it, and SCOG holding tight...Sigh).

To get a FAT filesystem onto the flash you'd probably need do some more than just partition it... You'd need use a formatter  of some sort... fdformat perhaps:-?
