Below your username where it shows the status "online"/"offline"... do you see the two buttons?? Edit and Quote. the one on the left is the one you want. C'mon dude you know better.

You can use Win98 boot this
but will not see the hard disk.
when you type c: and enter
you will get message like: Are you sure this is the disk you looking for?

once is loaded
fdisk -read the instruction then
format the disk and maki it "active"
run new OS setup and that is...

Win2000 CD will do as well.
Boot it and start installation, then
Select Partition -format, create new, create some more....
you name it
