If the drive is not your C: drive that has windows on it you can format it via disk management (right click My Computer > Manage > Disk Management, right click the drive you wish to partition/format and away you go.
If the drive you wish to format is your C: drive then set your cd rom drive to first boot device in the bios, pop your XP disk in the drive, reboot, hit any key to boot from cd when prompted and away you go. Don't forget to set your first boot device back to C: drive when the format/reinstallation is complete.
This procedure will wipe all information from the disks, please ensure you have backed up all important data before commencing
