if you have a friend with a linux live CD, you can boot up on that linux CD and use the partition editor to format the harddrive to partition sizes of choice, but also you can retrieve any lost data that you might want from the old system before reinstalling here, either way booting up on the live CD itself does not touch your harddrive as the linux os install itself to ram only, good luck then
