OK ZERO COOL, the best thing to do is:

Boot your computer with a bootable XP CD and delete all the partitions and creat a new partition, then format using either FAT or NTFS.

You can also, boot the computer using a win (98, ME, 2K, XP) boot disk and use the fdisk command to delete all the partitions and then create new partitions. Then use format command to format and install your new OS!

Do what "R" MAN AUDIO said: "Boot your computer with a bootable XP CD and delete all the partitions and creat a new partition, then format using either FAT or NTFS. "

When you boot up with the cd just format the partition with xp on it. Leave ME alone.
