it would prolly be easiest to backup, destroy, and rebuild.

you might be able to pull off imaging e and restoring to c, but i bet there's a lot of settings referencing the e drive.

you can destroy the two partitions when installing xp at the choose partition screen, or run fdisk, or use disk management in control panel | admin tools | computer management.

so when you startup, do you have the option to choose between to operating systems?
