I want to do a complete format of my hard drive, but i have tried everything i can think of , and still cant do it ( but to be honest, i`m not very skilled).

My computer is running windows xp pro.
I only have 2 identical hard drives , rigged as 2+0 Raid ( so, windows only sees one disk).

I want to completely erase what is on the hard drive , and also change OS - I have the old OS CD and the new one.

Can anyone help me?

You need to enter the bios, change boot order to boot to cd 1st, then boot to the os install cd, then format the drive and install.
