It depends on which OS you want to install. If you're using XP, in your system BIOS you can set your CD-ROM as the first boot device and it'll just boot from the cd. From there you can erase your partition, create a new one, and install the operating system. If I'm not mistaken, you can install Windows 2000 this way as well. I've only done that once so I could be wrong.

If you're installing 9x/ME (not sure why you would though) you need to boot from a bootable floppy and do a good old /format C: to get anywhere.

Oh, and if your XP disc won't boot directly, you can make these instead.

If you put the original cd in the drive in should bring up a screen where choose to reinstall windows.
