This is an old chestnut. I have 20gig HDD that i need to format. I will probably be installing win xp some time. Do i need to make a boot disc or can i just format the HDD from the dos prompt.

Connect the old HD as a secondary. Find it in My Computer, right click, select format---job done.

The Windows XP Disc will ask to format the drive prior to tha actual install
