Swap Win 2000 for Xp

  hospeng 14:08 03 Dec 2005

I have been given an IBM Thinkpad, old but still working. I want strip the Win 2000 and replace with Xp. I thought the Xp would overwrite the 2000 but it didn't. Is there any way I can clear out the 2000? I don't have admisistrator access to the Thinkpad.
Grateful for any answers

If you have a floppy drive put a windows98 or WME floppy in and on the A:\ prompt type FDISK and delete the none dose partition and reload windows XP,if you had been installing WXP PRO that would have installed over W200PRO.
