    Does anyone know of a good website where I can get pretty simple instructions on how to wipe out a hard drive then reload the OS from the ground up?

    I know how to format a hard drive, but I'm real iffy on how to get things going after that.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If you're talking about just formatting and installing, when you put the installation CD in, assuming you have one of those, during setup, it'll ask you whether or not, and how you want to format the drive.
    Select format, and you're golden, setup will continue with the installation.
    Peace.
