hi - i've just erased my hard disk (on my old pc)using a program called killdisk. I want to re-load a clean copy of windows xp, but i'm not sure how to do this. i think i have to use utilites like fdisk and format before i load XP. Could someone please guide me thru' these steps or point me to a website that shows you what to do.
thanks.

Did you make a startup floppy?

Go into the bios and change boot order to cdrom 1st/ide/floppy[you can change back after installation of win]
Insert WinXP disk in cdrom and follow instructions
