Default New harddrive advice please

Hi,

I want a bigger harddrive cos I use a lot of graphics, games and music files. I've checked out sizes and prices and also how to install it, seems pretty simple. But I need to know when it comes to reformatting the new hard drive how do I do it, and what will I need on disk? For example, this one I have now, I have a disk I put in that reformats for me to original factory settings, that includes windows being put back on.

So

1) reformatting, anyone possibly have a link to how I do this. I have looked myself and found a few sites on how to do it, but cos the nets not really 100% reliable with info, I dont want to get it wrong so thought I'd ask people who may know if they have a link or could find me a link with the correct info.

2) Windows, will I need windows on disk? If so, shouldn't be a prob, could probably get a disk from ebay.

3) Anything I've missed/I need to know?

Thanks in advance
