You have me confused. Are you trying to format a drive or just a partition? Maybe this is what you are looking for.

This is getting to be a real chore. All the info needed to do what you want is on those sites I gave you. I am not sure what you want to do but you can do a format of the existing partition from the xp cd. Then a fresh install of xp.
