If you don't have an OS installed and are using Fdisk to create new partition(s), when the first dialog comes up asking if you want to use Large Disk Support (or something to the effect), choose NO, this will allow you to create a FAT partition.

As for removing the Fat32 partition, use FDISK to delete the partition and then continue with instructions on message above, create partition and set it ACTIVE, reboot computer and FORMAT the C Drive that you should have just created.

i'm not understanding why having fat32 is preventing you from having your cd drive as d drive.if you are creating only one partition on your harddrive,it will be the c: drive then the cd drive will be assigned the next available letter d:
if you are creating only one partition then you want to use 100% of the drive
maybe you could go into a little more detail as to what you want to accomplish
also some details about your system would be usful too.
