Just boot off the XP CD, delete the all partitioning, repartition it as you see fit, format & install.

If it is infected it may be best to run a low level format first.

This can be downloaded from the hdd makers website.

However, before doing anything are you sure all partitions are infected. For example some pc's are delivered with one containing set up drivers etc.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
