Is your goal to reinstall? Just boot from the XP CD....read each step carefully, you'll see a step with the option to delete existing partition, then create a new partition, then format it.

If you're going to sell or give the HD away, and wish to have it blank...you can still do it from the CD, or slave it into another computer and format it, or boot from a disk with Delpart, or many of the utility disks you can download the the support/download section of your hard drive makers website.

Or boot from a 98 disk and format.

Many many ways. I can go on and on. What's your goal?

You don't need to format.
