I have a hard drive on which ME is installed.What I want to do is wipe the hard drive so I can use it as a slave drive in an XP system.What`s the best way to go about this ?

Install the drive as a slave into the XP PC, use the 'Disk Management' console to format the drive.

On the XP PC go to Start > Run and type in
diskmgmt.msc
OK

On the resulting window you will see all of your drives listed, right click on the slave and select format, you can even repartition it if you wish.

Many thanks Jack.I knew it was relatively simple but couldn`t get my head round it.
