You get this from restarting after the FDISK step, which is necessary
Change boot order sequence by pressing ESC or F2 (F8?) I think it was.
Boot once more from floppy and then do the formatting and SYS.

Your message indicates BIOS and Master Boot Record cannot find the 
active primary partition's bootsector. This bootsector can only be 
installed by SYS, but no data can be written until there's an actual 
filesystem on the partition, which FORMAT is responsible for.

So:
* reset machine
* boot from floppy or CD
* FORMAT C:
* SYS C:
