    Not hard at all.. boot from a cd and either choose to install and it will give you an option to fomat. or if your trying to get rid of xp boot from a cd and press "r" at the first screen and then type the admin password and type "format c:" then wait for it to finish.

    What do you need to know? Have you worked out any partitions if you want them? Let us know. Pretty sure if you tell us what your think you may have trouble with you'll get an answer. :D

    Don't forget to back everything up, such as your documents, music, and websites. Make a list and check it twice. I've made the mistake of forgetting things in the past, and it's a pain.
