How do I format 'C' under ME so that I can replace it with 2KPro?

I've done it before but my mind's gone blank!

Use a Win 98 boot floppy and use the format option!! Then load 2K cd and boot from cd in the bios.

Or, insert CD, restart, let computer boot from CD (usually you are prompted to press any key on keyboard to boot from CD). When you get to w2k Setup, press Enter to enter SEtup, F8 to accept agreement, ESC to install fresh copy, highlight C partition and press Enter to install w2k on C, then when given formatting options, select format with NTFS file system.

After formatting, files will be copied to hard disk. Computer needs to restart, leave CD in, but this time, do NOT boot from CD, but let computer boot from hard disk. Then just follow the prompts.
