    Lonman Bleh!

    You'll need to fdisk the entire drive. XP is installed on the C: drive and you're trying to do a clean installation? Is the drive partitioned? Do you have another drive in the system?

    Do you have XP installed on another partition or drive and C: is the boot drive/partition? If so, you can't format it without losing boot capablity into XP.
