|When you go trough the xp installer, it gives you a choice of where to install the system. There you have to first select and then delete the original partition. Then you have to either create or allow installer to use the drive.|
Be warned that many computers have a hidden recovery partition. You may be able to return this to OEM state by some F key at boot or using a cd to assist.
1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
