I want to format my hard drive so that I can install my windows on a clean drive but I don't know how.  I tried installing new and I tried repairing but all the old files are still there.  I know I sound like a real dummy but can someone please tell me how to get rid of all the old junk so that I can start over?

..after you've booted from the CD, select to install windows xp.  when the screen comes up listing your current partition, delete that partition, then install windows.  This will trigger a format of the drive when you then install XP.
