format ntfs hard drive

Hi there,
Please can you help me with this query, I have forgotten how to format a hard drive in NTFS, does it comes up after Fdisk, I can't remember.
Appreciate your help.

Do you still have access to windows ? Right click the drive letter and choose format.
Else boot from your windows cd and choose the partition and format options in setup

Hi, not sure about fdisk, but earlier this week I re-formatted a friend's 120Gb hard-drive NTFS, using Partition Magic6 an old but very good program, I think the latest version is P-M8.

There are two ways you can this: -

(a)As Yoda Knight says...right-click your HD and select Format, on the drop-down list select NTFS.

(b)Right Click My Computer.
(c)Left Click Manage.
(d)Left Click Disk Management.
(e)Right Click your Drive.
(f)On drop-down select Format.
