Default Formating.

WinXP screwed up and some other things. So, I wish to format 'EVERYTHING!'. A fresh start.
So, how can I format the hard drive from startup or Winxp DOS setup?

Default

After booting off the CD, the installer will prompt you through it. It will list your partitions, choose the one you want to delete (D button I think), create a new partition in that space, then select it as the one on which you want to install Windows. The installer will automatically give you the option of which type of formatting you want to use (FAT32, NTFS, standard or quick format).
