First lets make it clear, you dont ever low format a disk unless you really want to either severley limit its capacity or make it entirely inaccessible.
Boot you PC to a start disk (win 98) and at the A:> prompt type FORMAT X: press enter, X is the letter of the drive you want to format followed by a colon, you will be warned that all data will be destroyed and to verify (y or n) to proceed, hit y and of you go.
Windows XP is a bit different, you boot using the XP CD (change your BIOS setting for first bot device) put the CD in the drive and start up, I wont go through all the options because XP makes it very clear what you can do with it, partition, format either Fat 32 or NTFS. Once you have XP running use disk manager from XP to create\delete or resize partitions and format any other drives you have.
