you need a DOS boot disk, and a program called Fdisk.exe (compatible with the DOS version you get)
delete the partition, and you don't have to re-create the partition in Fdisk, you can do that when you install XP

Well for the same price I could have got the GeForce 6800GT, I'm just annoyed they didn't consult me first
