Re-format Hard Drive to NTFS Format

I have a A51 8131-34U ThinkCentre with the 5 startup disks from IBM/Lenovo.  I am trying to re-format my hard drive using the NTFS format.  I don't know how to do it.  I can use the disks to restore the computer to its original settings but I don't see an option to format the hard disk as if I were using an XP installation disk.  Can someone please help?!?
 
Thanks

If your drives are already FAT you can use the convert command to turn them into NTFS partitions without loosing any data.
