you can boot from the Windows XP cd and use that to partition the drive.

Thyanks buddies, Actually I was using a partition commander, and I want to get rid out of it. I am looking for the way if there are the way to do the as DOS partition.

no. if partition commander has commandline switches that is the closest thing you can get to FDISK. FDISK is not supported by operating systems that support NTFS, not any that i know of. FDISK is for the ancient win9x, meaning winME and below.
