Anyone happen to know how to run Fdisk in windows XP? I opened command prompt and it was like that:

C:\Documents and settings\User>

I typed Fdisk there and so it looked like that

C:\Documents and settings\User>Fdisk

Then an error message. I could run Fdisk using command prompt in earlier versions of windows but not in XP. Anyone knows how to do it?

I'm not sure, but I don't think there is any fdisk in Windows XP.

In Control Panel under Administrative Tools you can find Computer Management. In it under Storage go to Disk Management where you find wizards and stuff to format disks. I'm sure you can do it in the command promt but I don't know how.
