Question Uninstall XP

I did something stupid and need your help.. I loaded XP Pro over Win-2000 on my laptop. The problem is that I cna't uninstall XP. I went to add/remove programs, no luck. No programs were listed. More frustration is that the XP cd shows it's in the D drive. I have no D drive. Somethinh must of happen where it "split" itself. The XP cd does not have an uninstall feature only install. Please help me. When booted, I'm ask to either select win-2000 or XP.

don't format the hard drive, just format the partition, unless you want it to be a full hard drive and not split then you will probably have to repartition and format the whole drive.
