Looking for help on reformatting XP. I don't have a floppy drive, so the Windows 98 to XP route isn't available. And the XP CD won't allow me to delete the C: partition (the only HD/partition) b/c "temporary setup files" on on the partition, which are needed for set-up. Any ideas how to reformat the C: drive w/o using the XP CD?

The only reason temporary setup files would be on the drive is if you are attempting an upgrade install. Is this the case?

No. I'm attempting a fresh install. It is, however, my brother's computer, and perhaps he had previously attempted an upgrade earlier.
