You can't format C from the C prompt (assuming the OS is installed on C). Is your plan to reinstall the OS?

You state your OS as XP, so are you running both XP and Vista?

You cannot format the system drive from within Windows, not with any account. The drive is normally formatted as a part of the install process. Just boot from the DVD and follow the instructions. Be aware that this will destroy all data on the drive.
