Just boot off the XP disc. All the tools you need to partition & format are built in.

One might need some special drivers. It may be that the OEM's web site has them for download.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

You may need to enter the BIOS (setup) and change the boot order to show the CD drive before the hard drive. Watch for a message to hit any key to boot from the CD. Hit the space bar at that time.

That assumes you have a full version CD of WinXP.
