here are the steps.
1. Boot of of your windows xp cd.
2. Let the cd load, then it should give you a few options.
3. I think you hit Enter to install windows xp.
4. It might ask you if you want ntfs or fat32, pick nfts.
5. It should start formatting.

If these are wrong ill do it on my computer and i will give you more exact directions.

I'm Forgetful! so if i stop posting on something that i was helping you with... PM me or IM me

Make sure you try to do a full format.
