You can not delete an active partition from Windows if the OS that you are using is on it. You will need to use a command prompt utility. Easiest way would be to just throw in the XP disk and when it asks about partitions do whatever you want.
you need to boot the computer with the xp cd in the drive (also make sure that in the BIOS you have the cd booting before the hard drive). Then when the blue setup screen comes up, just pick from the menu whatever you want to do.
