Exclamation WinXP Pro installation error

How do I change the partition type?
right now it gives me
C: Partition1 [new <raw>]
This disk does not contain a WinXP compatible partition...
How can i confert to NTFS?
Thanks.

EDIT: to Plexxxy and mpk
Here's what I get after I select the partition and press enter:
To install WinXP on the partition you selected, setup must write some startup files to the following disk:
unkown disk
However, this disk does not contain a WinXP compatible partition
To continue instlaling WinXP return to the partition selection screen and create a Win XP compatible partition on the disk above. If there is no free space on the disk, delete an exisitng partition, and then create a new one.
To return to the partition selection screen, press ENTER

Thanks.
EDIT:
I'll type everything I see... EXACTLY HOW IT IS SHOWN. But i g2g to sleep soon im dead tired just came from basketball practice
