Could it be that your disk is too large to supported by fdisk ?

Or, boot from the Solaris CD and run fdisk from the suninstall program.

What are you trying to do ?

There is a very good paper at
http://multiboot.solaris-x86.org/

about how and why

Try deleting the partitions using the Solaris CD before running DOS fdisk command.
