At present I am running Windows 2000, but would like to re-instal onto a newly partitioned disk.
How do I wipe the disk clean, as "fdisk" and "format" are not recognised as valid commands in the Dos command prompt.

try downloading the ultimate boot disc using google this will clean your disk and allow fdisk to run from a start up disk.

If you you want to use FDISK with W2000 insert a W98 or WME floppy set computer to first boot floppy in the bios or in my case i can use F12 to choose most cases this is already done if your computer has a floppy drive,on boot choose without CD Rom support on the A:\ prompt type FDISK and delete the None Dos partition if your using NTFS.
