    This is probably really simple, but I don't know how to format my harddrive. :doh: I want to install Window's NT on my old computer.

    The NT installer has a built-in formatting tool. It's been a while since I last installed NT4, but IIRC at the beginning it will ask you if you want to do a new installation and if you click yes it takes you to a partitioning table where you can delete and add partitions, then tell it where to install.
