    can't be done in xp. only able to convert from FAT32 to NTFS. you could try a 3rd party utility like partition magic, but even then, chance of success on an active/primary partition are low. for example, from the help section...

    format the drive and start over, just make sure to back up you stuff first! best of luck.
