Thanks to both of you for your help.
I'm planning on using a program called Darik's boot and nuke to wipe the drive. When I run this program will it just automatically search and distroy the different partitions so I can then reinstall easily?
Also, when you say you seperate your drive, would you install ME in C for instance and then XP in D ? When you are going through the reinstallation proccess for XP and ME.
Sorry if that questions seems silly, as I said- I'm a novice....
Thanks for the help- I'll check out partition magic!!
