need to format my hdd. i'm using windows xp and it won't let me use fdisk through command prompt. windows recognized the drive as what it is ... but i can't use it .... i need to get it formatted but not sure what to do ... don't want to reinstall and don't have a floppy drive ... can i use the win xp cd to just format the new drive and not do anything to the old one?

Try this:
1) Right click on My Computer.
2) Select Manage.
3) Under "Storage" go to "Disk Management".
4) Right click on the new hard drive you want to format and select "Format..."
