Ah. Well, Win7 can access EXT partitons. So if you are now limited to WinXP, you could download the freeware GParted (download the ISO file). Then use it to create a bootable GParted disc. GParted can access and work with/create/delete all kinds of partitions. I had used it to format the EXT partition back before Velocity 1 and Froyo. It is easy to use and pretty much intuitive.
