Format Hard Drive

I want to format my hard drive to do new Windows XP installation- but Windows persistantly failed to format it(right click on C: Drive> format )
What could be the reason? & is there any other way to do it ?
My system :
AMD Athlon 1.6GHz
1.2 GB memory
80GB Hard Drive

Are you trying to format the drive you're actually running Windows from?
Just boot from the XP CD, it will give the option to format the drive/partition.
