You want to use the windows XP installation CD to format your HDD. FDISK doesnt read NTFS Partitions.

Well, actually, you could use FDisk to delete those partitions, just go to the non-dos side of it. I've used it to remove NTFS partitions. But the Windows XP side may be a little bit more user friendly.
