    Put the xp disk in and run setup, delete the partition, you should then be able to startup with a win98 startup disk, run fdisk, and recreate the partition, format, then reinstall me

    Just go to Add/Remove programs and remove(Uninstall) winxp. Follow the instructions and goodluck.

    No, ME will not run on NTFS. Delete and recreate the the disk partition using FDISK or Partition Magic as FAT32.
