How do I re-format 'dangerously dedicated' drive?

Hi all,

I don't have an MS-DOS floppy, and I think my CDROM isn't booting because the
HD is 'dangerously dedicated,' even though it is a bootable CD and the BIOS is
set to boot it first.

I want to totally clear my drive so I can reinstall from scratch from CDROM.
How can I do this?
