|It's indeed an FDISK problem.|
The Windows XP installation CD is bootable by itself.
At a point of installation, you will be asked for the harddisk (if more than one is available) and the partition, to install to.
Here you can also change the partition size, if needed, and create a second partition, if you like.
If you use FDISK, you can create only FAT32 partitions. I don't know, if that is, what you want.
Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!
