Of course.  You'll have to copy fdisk.exe onto the boot disk...
Actually, the best thing to do is to use Win95's boot disk utility to
make a boot disk.  Use the help facility, search for boot disk, and
you're on your way.  It will copy a whole bunch of utilities to the
floppy.  Everyone who runs Windoze should have one or two handy.
