please make a new thread by creating a new topic.
Win 98 installs on FAT32 partitions while Win XP on NTFS file formats.

you don;t need to format c: to restore the image an image is a bit by bit reproduction of the drive that was the image--including the file system
You can format with the windows xp cd, and just choose format if you like, though---just stop the process when the format is complete---don't know if there is any value in that.
you can also use any number of third party tools--including those that come with the drive on a cd or floppy to format the drive--or use the ultimate bootdisk, which includes/collects many of these utilities
