reformating from windows 98 second edition

  summers13 08:51 15 Sep 2004

I am having serious problems with my machine and wish to reformat from windows 98 second edition to windows XP professional and wondered if anyone had any tips. I have seen an article on the net concerning reformating but it asks me to download delpart.exe and one of the problems that I am having with the machine is no internet connection and cannot seem to download this programme via floppy as it is too big and I dont have a rewriter for CD and have not a clue how to use winzip to do so. I appreciate I make life difficult as a novice but would be grateful for any help.
Thanks in advance

As you are going with XP, you will have no need of fdisk; I should have read more carefully! VoG's link is pretty good :-}
