    Do you want to completely format your hard drive (destroy all data) or
    just Windows XP?

    If just Windows XP, then boot onto the installation disc and choose
    Install. Just allow it to overwrite the existing OS, but choose NOT to
    format the partition, just Leave As Is.

    If you want to completely blast your drive, then choose Format during
    the install.

    PS - MAKE BACKUPS FIRST!
