I don't get the question. What are you trying to do?

with mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 you will format the first partition of the
second (SCSI/SATA) drive with the filesystem ext3. Everything on this
partition will be gone afterwards.

I don't know what is on which partition you have and what you want to do.
