Default couple problem need help

I very need help with this one, i just bough a new HP desktop pc for christmas, but it come with winxp media center english version, which i don't very like it so i decide to format hard drive (200GB), and finall i install the winxp home edition, every thing are running fine but it does not have sound ! i only have a VGA connection to connect to motherboard, and the motherboard look like have no sound card. finally here is my problems:

1. how do i format a 200GB by use fdisk and install a fresh windows, i don't like the winxp media center, i can't just install the winxp home.

2. when i finally install the winxp home, every thing works fine but have no sound, computer can't detect any sound devices

anyway, i use fdisk to format the disk and i can only use 100 GB because the fdisk can't detect the whole hard drive, that means i can left around other 100 GB space some where i can't see and can't use.

thank you

use the xp cd to delete and format your disc.

head to type your computer number and download your sound card driver and install it
