In your Bios change the boot option to boot from CDROm and then put the cd in the drive and reboot Watch the screen as it may say "Press Any Key to Boot from CD" Press the key and away you go.

Boot off the Win2K CD to begin installation

When it begins, it'll hunt out and tell you its found Win2K, but just tell it you wanna carry on with the Installation.

Select the primary partition and press "D" to delete, and confirm it a couple of times...

Then, select the "Free unpartitioned space" and carry on.

It'll then offer to format it using NTFS or FAT32.

See the FAQ also, on Partitioning and Formatting your PC :-)

BTW - Your CapsLock key is on :-)
