Default Proper way to Reinstall Window

Hi, can anyone tell me what should be the proper way to format my C drive and reinstall XP?
If I try to install window FROM my current window, it wouldn't let me format my c drive, it keep asking if i wanna partition my drive which I don't. There is no format option for me to do that and if I continue without format, i will have 2 windows on top of each other causing system errors.

What should I do to format the drive? and then reinstall?
