WIN XP boot problem

  1. this is my hard disk condition right now.
    one physical hard drive with two partitions..

    C:/ had win 98 files and main boot files. it is the primary drive. i recentlf converted it form fat 32 to ntfs making WIN 98 not work.. i was unaware it does not work in NTFS.. so i deleted the WIN 98 folder, program files folder and windows folder on this drive.

    D:/ is still a fat32 partition and has my WIN XP and is a logistical drive(says acrosis disk director)

    is it safe to leave it in this condition or do i have to shift my boot files from C: drive to d: drive??

    i do not wish to format any drive

    It's safe if you are able to boot off of the D:/ partition.
