fifi,

Are you running any drive overlay software such as MaxBlast (Maxtor), EZ Bios (Western Digital), OnTrack (Quantum), etc?
Also, do a SCANDISK with a surface scan to verify that you do not have any bad sectors.  You cannot convert to FAT32 with a bad sector on the hard drive.
Do you have any statements in your Autoexec.Bat or Config.sys
referring to the said files. Also run msconfig, go to startup tab.
Now see if there is any statement referring to any such file.
