My earnest advice is - If you have to ask, DON'T.

Formating your Hard drives is very tricky stuff. Get an expert to do it or you can spend ages trying to recover from it. (Spoken from personal experience)

Yea I would agree with Graham on this one, formating your hard drive should always be a last resort as it will completely delete everything and getting set back up with drivers etc can be a tricky business, but it shouldn't be too bad if you have a name brand pc with a restore cd, that should contain all the vital files and drivers you will need.
The site given above is very imformative and should guide you through it, just make sure you have all files/programs/drivers you need backed up and you have a bootable floppy with cdrom drivers so you can access your cdrom to re-install windows.
