Default partitioning and installing xp and debian

Hi everyone.
I have a problem. i recently bought a toshiba m70 laptop and i was using partition magic t partition it into three parts.
part 1: ntfs -windows xp
part 2: fat32
part 3: fat32

and i went to reformat them all into fat 32 so i could install debian onto the laptop and it all went hay wire.because toshiba has given me a crap recovery cd i can't partition with that and i have no program to do it with and i can't make a fdisk because the laptop doesn' have a floppy.
and debian dosn't want to install because it can't read the media and xp doesn't want to install because it says theres insuficiant space.

i need a partition program that i can boot from cd and fix this all.
your help is so so so appreciated thanks everyone

do you have another xp machine..

if you do, you can create the 'fdisk' on a usb key

im currently searching for a program for you in case this doesn't work out.
