Use a boot disk, or the WinXP cd... if the cd is yer choice, select system recovery, that will bring up an DOS-prompt. Just type "format ?:" there... /where "?" is you target drive, of course! :)

I used Win98

I re-formatted and partitioned recently and used my WIN98 boot disk to perform this. I could not (due to my ignorance) find a way to make the appropriate XP boot disk. Microsoft's download website has a download is for some type of boot disk (for XP home and pro) but I have not fooled with it.
