Pretty much its that simple yup. If you plan to erase everything and have all your important files backed up then a reformat and clean install is very easy. Just boot from the XP CD and then follow the on screen instructions when prompted to reformat using NTFS (run the full format not quick format) and setup will contiune once its finished formatting and loading the main setup files.
