I believe bootdisk.com has this make bootable windows 98 floppy and then
Using a W98 boot-floppy, delete and make that partition again, using FDISK. Make it active.
Then from that same floppy type in format c: /s. Then it should work.
Let XP reformat/convert in NTFS when it gets there during install.
be sure to boot to floppy
