It's not gonna be real easy from within Windows on a 1 drive system - because you'll be formatting the disk that Windows needs in order to run.
An easier solution would be to:
1) Get the drive caddy for the drive
2) Hook up the new drive in the caddy and format it.
3) Put the new, formatted drive in the PC (and remove the old one) - then install Windows XP
4) Then put the old drive in the caddy, hook it up and format it from within the new Windows installation.
FWIW - the Dos Prompt and the Command Shell are accessible from the Run dialog. Type command.exe for the DOS prompt and cmd.exe for the Command Prompt.
If this isn't confusing enough - Microsoft has just started launching their new "Power Shell" which will take the place of both.
