About a month ago - I posted here that I got the blue screen and it could not be repaired. On the advice of some here - I removed the hard drive - hooked it up to my other computer and transferred all of the important files over. Now I am ready to reformat/reinstall XP on the blue screen drive. What is the best way to go about this. My intiail thought was that it should be straightforward, but knowing how confusing Microsoft products can be I figured I'd check here before getting started. Any advice would be great! Also - thanks again to whomever helped me last time - this forum is great!

Set your BIOS to boot from cd. Usually you access it by tapping the "delete" key, YMMV. Boot with the XP cd and follow the prompts.
