Hello everyone. I have been searching around on the internet, and here, for a concise and conclusive guide on hot to reformat a hard drive and install XP. It seems that everywhere I go there is conflicting information...for example, at this point I have been told and have seen that I need a dos boot-disc. I have also been told or seen that I can boot directly from the XP cd. NTFS or Fat32?? My head is spinning. Can anyone provide or steer me towards a guide that will provide info on how to erase the hard drive so that there is nothing on it, then show me how to format to a NTFS file system (from what I can decipher, this is the best option for me) and then install XP. I have one hard drive (40GB). I also have the a XP cd that came with my system for reinstalling. Thanks.
