Well, for example: if your going to install WinXP. put the installation CD into the Optical Drive, boot from the CD. once it loads temp files then it should bring you to a screen which will show the specs of your HDD. (ex: 56120MB) From that screen you can delete, create partitions and format. go ahead and format it and then go along with the installation.
