    Why not just wait until your next format?
    I have found that when you install XP, it gives you the option of formatting in either fat32 or ntfs only if it is already fat32. If it's a new drive or is already ntfs, then ntfs is the only option.
    When I need a fat32 drive for something like dual boot using xp and win98se or another os and it's new or ntfs, the 98floppy comes in handy to do the fat32 format or convert back from ntfs.(aparently the only way to convert back)

    You could use PartitionMagic.

    Not quite. If you have a partition greater than 32GB, the Windows XP CD will only give you the option to format it in NTFS. All other partitions can be formatted in either.
