Depends on what version you want to install. If you want to install XP and it's a Microsoft setup CD, just boot from it to start setup. It will detect that you have an older version of windows installed, then you can simply tell xp setup to delete that partition (C:). XP setup will then ask you where yo want to install XP. Select 'unallocated space' (that's where old version used to be), XP setup will format it then starts installing XP.

However, IF you are going to install 98 or ME. Boot from a startup floppy then type FORMAT C:
When it's finished your old version will be gone and you'll have an empty C: partition. Pop in the 98*admin CD and type SETUP and press ENTER.
