here is a good guide on how to do that : Windows XP Clean Install Guide
The other option is if your machine is a branded machine, ie Dell, Emachine, Packard Bell, hp...etc. They normally come with a restore program which is automated and is normally built onto the hard drive or in the form on cds. This will wipe all the info off and put it back to the way it was when you first purchased it.
hope this helps.

That is...most odd.
Is this a usb or ps2 keyboard? Do you have another around that is different?
Which keys do not work?
There are macro programs that intercept key presses and can cause odd behavior, but since you have two distinct OSs, it should not be an issue.
Since they keyboard works, it may be the actual port...but the problem here is a ps2 port only uses one wire for data...and one would expect all or nothing with the keyboard.
Do me a favor
start > run
go to keyboard, double click, what does it say at the top of the general tab?
