If you can still load OS/2 then boot into that and copy all you important infomation across to your fat drive.
After that delete the partition in fdisk and recreate it.
Then format the drive to fat.

Get Partition Magic which will convert OS2, Win NT, and FAT files back and forth without losing your data.

If you don't have any important files you want to keep, format the entire partition and your done. Get PM3.0 to combine both partitions. Also, sounds like you would also need to change the info on your boot manager, since it looks like you have multiboot capabilities.

Are you sure it is only "1 meg"? You sure are wasting time for only 1 meg.
