If it is a Dell of any sort you should press F12 to get the boot menu up.
If not try to get the boot menu up.
If you have a Xp or Vista or NT WORKSTATION 4.0 setup disc put it in the computer and boot from cd.
XP gives you the option to partion and that can mean a way to format i think vista does. (Mine came preinstalled).
Not sure if NT does.
Anyway let me know how you get on.

You can format with the NT4 cd but it doesnt allow partitions any bigger than something around 2-3GB so if you have a big hdd its annoying.

you can use that upgrade disc to format but to be able to install a windows upgrade on a formatted hdd you must provide a previous windows cd (2000, ME, 98 etc)
