If you insist on a re-install then you don't need killdisk. Boot from the windows xp cd, when it asks you where to install put the drive you want to format/reinstall on. It will ask whether to format or not, choose quick format. Then it will install windows and (hopefully) we'll see you back here.

By the looks of killdisk, it will vary between hours and days. There is NO reason to do a full format except to maybe get a small few more mb.

Ok, Game Freak.

There really is no way to be certain how long each pass will take, by advice would be to just set a high number of runs, and simply stop it when you come back from work/whenever you need to.
