Got to bite the bullet and re-fomat

  MidgetMan 10:20 25 Nov 2004

Further to my posts click here and click here and click here i have decided to bit the bullet and start from scratch. I have never done this with xp before and so am a bit nervous.

My freind has got the restore disks (8 of them)!! so looks like she burnt the master disks to cd so the orig is not on the hd anymore. What i need confirming/explaining is.
When i boot up from the cd is it option 1 we choose to a fomat/clean install?
When it asks for the key is that the number on the side of the pc?
Does xp need to re-registered on the ms site?. and all the fixs need to be d/loaded?
Anything else need to know look out for????
