How can I format the drive of a Compaq S3000NX when the computer won't boot?

I have a Compaq S3000NX computer,13 years old. The computer won't boot into Windows XP. I suspect that there is a corrupt file, which is why I would like to re-format the drive. Can anyone suggest a free simple bootable re-formatting program so that I can wipe the drive out and re-install Windows XP? Thanks...Carl
