You can download an ISO File, you need something like Nero to burn it to disc, as an ISO Image File, then set the boot priority to boot from CD ROM Drive then hard drive

The advantage is that you can WRITE ZEROS TO DRIVE - The Write Zeros option, wipes any and all data off your drive. This option used when your data is no longer usable or recoverable. If you no longer need any data from your drive and would like to start over, run this option to set your drive to an as new condition.

NOTE: Please make sure that you have selected the correct drive to perform this function on as once ran, no data will be recoverable.

You can get the file here

Choose the CD ISO

It will take hours to write zeros but I am more than impressed with the effect it can have on getting the hard drive ready for install

Once you have run this, change the CD for the XP CD and reboot the PC

All the above is optional you may prefer to go ahead and format then install
