    a friend of mine asked for my help in wiping his whole computer and installing in Windows XP operating system. I havent done it in a while so i sorta forget how to wipe the drive and all and basically take everything off the computer so that when it starts back up its like a new computer. Also, once everything is off so i just put the OS cd in and it should go through install set-up or is there nething else that ihave to do? Thanks in advance

    Should be...

    Boot with XP Disk, go to setup windows, delete the old partition, create a new one, format it, then it will install windows.
