If you don't want Anything On the ENTIRE Drive you can Download and run Boot 'n Nuke. Just google it.

If you dont need anything on the drive. Jsut delete the partitions with D. From there create a new partition for XP that is only about 20GB. you should be able to isntall XP with that software mentioned above. I havent personally tried it but it sounds like it has worked for that person before.
