format problems

Has anyone advice on how to fix a little problem I'm having?

I just inherited an Asus laptop:
750 mhz
128 mb ram
20 gig hd

I was trying to install Windows Xp Proffesional on it, i got to the format part, and whenever i try to delete the partition, it says "windows cannot delete this partition, please go back and try something else", when i go back to the partitions screen, it says windows cannot access this space.

Then if i try to delete it again i get a hardware error. It was working fine, just decided to do this out of nowhere.
Any Idea's?

Boot from a boot floppy and use fdisk to remove the partitions on the drive:
