Can someone just clarify for me whether "New Installation" on the WinXP CD translates into 'reformat' or not, because it doesn't exactly seem like it would be a reformat to me, but what would I know.

No, you have the option of installing it on a second partition for exapmle, although during installation it does give you the option of formatting your filesystem with whatever FS you'd like, being NTFS or FAT32!

Hope this helps

It helps, not how I would've liked it to though.
So is that to say the people who were discussing being able to format WinXP straight from the CD were wrong then? Because if so I'm gonna have a much worse time formatting..<cringe>

It gives you the option of formatting... Woah.. De Ja Vu... Im sure Ive said that before ;-)

You can format during install if you want from that option, or if you have a second partition, you can Dual-Boot.

If you are wanting to format your PC, then that is the option for you :-)

Gah. I read that the wrong way.
Sorry, nk.
