if you mean reformat the whole drive:

just restart comp then go into dos and choose to start comp
with cd-rom support.

then go to command promt and type---- format c:

it will give you the standard warning ex: you are bout to bla bla


just confirm yes. it will then do the usual reformatting of the drive
then return to command prompt A:\

type E:\ the prompt will then turn to an E:\

then type setup and it should start the setup from the cd rom

If you boot off of your windows disk, choose install, you should have the option to reformat and reinstall
