    The computer was originally installed with Win98 and then someone went ahead and installed WinXP onto the same partition. So now the HD as two OS.

    The owner wants to go ahead and just wipe the HD and then re-install WinXP as the only OS.

    Can I go ahead and do this the normal way of popping in the XP disk and reformatting it that way? Or should I do it through the bios and fdisk it first?

    Yes, XP's setup should format the whole drive for you and then install XP as the sole OS.

    Just making sure that's all I had to do since someone told me that I needed to do it through the BIOS .
