Default Hard Drive Help

Ok its a real long sotry but to cut it short, I'm going to reformat my hard drive. I have heard this is quite simple but could anyone help me out because I dont know where to begin. I have my windows disk and code and everything I want on my external hard drive. Ok so I put in the wondows CD and make it so it boots up to that. I got into windows setup and it will say Loading Windows something or other like it should and BAM blue screen of death. I have no clue what to do. Is it possiable to just goto Run and type "Format C:" let it go and then when its done pop in my windows install disk? If I do that will I be able to reinstall windows? Any help is GREAT. Thanks

EDIT: It is windows xp with SP2. Now, when I got my computer it dident come with a wondows disk so I have to use my brothers. His is SP1. So I am going down. I have my own code though.
