Just insert the xp disc and run it. It should format your hdd before installation. Just make sure your boot sequence is set to cdrom first in the bios.

Also unless you don't want to format your current drive, (which means you lose ALL information on your harddrive), you will need a program called partition magic so that you do not lose your information when you create the partition.
