    format "drive letter"

    as an example:

    format c: /U

    the /U switch will unconditionally format the drive

    for more info type "format /?" at the command prompt

    I go from DOS personally

    format c:

    then type y

    That will format to FAT32 without issue

    If you want to format NTFS you can do the same, but you might as well use the XP CD since you'll want the install right after anyway.

    If its a new drive you want to format NTFS, use My computer, right click and follow as above.
