    You might as well google for "fdisk instructions"..

    Basically, you run fdisk in DOS mode, delete all the partitions fdisk shows you, then recreate them as you like.

    If you are going to do a clean install of XP, why not just use the formatting options built into the install program? It will ask you if you want to completely format your drive and install XP onto it. It's probably easier that way as well.
