    What OS will you be installing on the formatted drive?

    If it's XP, you just put in the CD and reboot. The XP install will come up and one of the options will be to wipe the current partition and reinstall Windows. If you're reinstalling 2000, I'm not sure what the procedure is as I've never used it before, although I would guess that it'd be similar to XP.
