You don't need fdisk, but you do need to get the drive back to fat32. To do this boot with startup disc and type format c: /fs:fat32 assuming the drive is C.

For a boot disc click here

Put a W98 OR WME floppy in and reboot on the A:\ prompt choose without CD Rom support on the A:\Prompt type fdisk and delete the none dos partition you will then have to format and create the dos partition and make it active put your WME floppy in and disk reboot and install.
You can't convert NTFS TO FAT32 like you can FAT32 to NTFS.
