1).Boot to start floppy at A:> prompt type FORMAT C: press return.
2) Do the same for any other drives you created using fdisk.
3)If you didn't make any partitions, do this first before number 1), start as no.1 at the prompt type FDISK press enter, if it asks about large drive support answer yes.
Now create a pimary dos partition, use all of the drive or if you want other partitons use only some of the space (say 33%) then make the first partition active(otherwise it wont boot), create an extended partition with all the remaining space and then set logical drives to as many as you want. Follow Fdisks menu as you partition your disk and you will see from the choices offered you can easilly follow the above.
If now you have partitions go back to 1) at the top and format each drive.
Now you're ready for your OS
