Put your boot disk in and boot, assuming you have one. Then type "fdisk" at prompt. When ask if you want large disk support say type "Y" this will make a FAT32 partition. Then select create new boot partition which is the first choice if I remember. It should ask you how big you want the partition, type in the size and name the volume. Once this is done go back in and select the second choice which is activate partition and make your boot partition active. Then reboot and format. I hope that helps.
