I could be wrong but I don't think XP uses startup disks, You boot to the XP CD...:)

Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management/... Then right click the partition, or drive you want to make changes to, and select your option.

This is purely speculation here, but I'm guessing that all programs included with XP are win32 only and won't run in DOS. But NTFS was the propriatary format of NT, so you could probably mooch what ever program that does it from a NT system, copy it to a floppy or whatever, and you'd be set. ( This is assuming NTFS is like FAT32 and hasn't changed much since it's original design) If you get it to work, let me know I could stand to do the same thing.
