Potato or slink's dos utils (on the ftp server but not officially
part of the distrib) include a partition-shrinking tool that 
works fine with vfat (I used it on several different machines 
to convert them from W95 to Debian).  I don't recall the
program's name, but poke around where you found loadlin.exe.  
This is a W95 era machine, is it not?  So no ntfs, right?

A mandrake ISO is useless if you can't boot off CD.
