    Hi I have a 120gb hard drive formatted in NTFS that I wish to wipe and
    format in fat32 for another computer. When I use fdisk to wipe the partition
    it only shows the drive as a 40GB I seem to remember that there is another
    version of fdisk that shows the correct disk size. Where will I get it and
    what version is it?

    you can get the updated version from the microsoft website
    or just use a winME bootdisk which you can get here:
