I need to reinstall windows xp home edition, during the process it informed me that the installation will be done in another partition. I don't want to partition my hard disk, so I'd rather format it and start from scratch, I have the home edition recovery console, is there anything else I need before I format the disk? Do I need a dos programme or something?

No you dont need anything else, just go into the bios, set your cd drive to first boot device, and restart you pc with the xp disk in your cd drive.

See above and make sure you understand the options offered to you during the installation.
