All the existing partitions and the unpartitioned spaces are listed for each physical hard disk. Use the ARROW keys to select the partition.
Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition by using unpartitioned space. If you press D to delete an existing partition, you must then press L (or press ENTER, and then press L if it is the System partition) to confirm that you want to delete the partition.
When all the partitions are deleted, select the remaining unpartitioned space, and then press C to create the new partition.
Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.
Use the ARROW keys to select the partition where you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER
Select the format option that you want to use for the partition, and then press ENTER. You have the following options:
Format the partition by using the NTFS file system (Quick)
Format the partition by using the FAT file system (Quick)
Format the partition by using the NTFS file system
Format the partition by using the FAT file system
Leave the current file system intact (no changes)
Formatting will take a while...be patient.
After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue.
If you have any questions, do nothing until I return.

I'll play around but I won't do anything that I'm not completely sure of. See you later.

Couldn't find where to turn on the firewall.
The firewall will show up withe SP2 and will configure automatically when you restart.
Rather than installing Norton right away, you should install Avast until you are finished with all other updates and installs. It's important that you have an Anti-Virus running if you are on the internet.
