Beware, when you choose a partition type in cfdisk (or fdisk), it
doesn't format anything.
It just fill a record with an ID, wich is meant to indicate what type of
formatting will be on it.
You can format a FAT32 filesystem on a Linux Type partition.
But I think some OS will not see it, because they would look only at the
type they know in the partition table, without searchink to know what
really is on each partition.
