    for u to format c: u cant simply do it in dos. u gat to restart your computer and insert the WinXP Pro or Home Edition CD in u r cd drive and boot from it. If u have brought u r self a LEGAL version of WinXP its already bootable. this is done at manufacturing time itself.

    You cannot format the C: partition as i guess it wuld be the primary partition that contains 3 essential files.

    remember ,you can't format NTFS by dos. if you have bootable xp cd,continue installation till the format option comes.
