1)  Check FDISK again.  Make sure there is one large Primary DOS partition
on the disk.

2)  Reboot using a DOS floppy with format, etc. on it.  Then run "format
c:" -- it should start up.

If you want to get rid of the boot manager (if you installed it) then run:

fdisk /mbr

That will reset the mbr back to the default.
