I think you will have problems trying to format the drive that has the operating system. You need to create a boot floppy which has the basic dos commands necessary to format the disc. Start the pc with the floppy in the drive to enter dos and then use the format command.

Thanks for the many replies and I've sorted it now. Cheers.

Apologies to all as I had 2 threads on this which probably isn't viewed as good. But I needed the command so I posted it as a seperate question.
