The easiest way to do this now, without knowing what you already tried, is to grab the utility from the hard drive manufacturer for your hard drive and reformat the drive with one large NTFS or fat32 partition, then install Windows.
For example, if you have a Maxtor hard drive, use it's Maxblast utility to do the job. Of course, this assumes that you have another PC that you can download the software with and burn a cd.
The other method is to use the first Fedora boot cd and progress through the installation steps to the partitioning section. Choose custom partitioning and tell Fedora to format the drive to fat32. Allow the partitioning to occur, then stop the installation process once the drive is partitioned. Then install XP.
Finally, you could also download a Live cd of Knoppix or Mepis, then use the included partitioning utility (gparted) to format the drive to fat32. This assumes that you did not allow Fedora to use LVM partitions on the drive. I'm not sure if gparted can alter LVM partitions, but you could give it a try.
