step1: format the flash drive as FAT in winXP.
How exactly did you format the flash drive?

If you just used the Windows XP format utility that may be your problem. On many flash drives you need to use something like the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool.

Can you not delete the partitions on the USB key? I've never had these problems with many installs of Fedora to USB keys. Have you tried unetbootin? Another way to do it would be to use a livecd and the install to disk button.
