If you really mean wipe it - i.e. clear the whole disk - then you can
boot from the XP CD and select a disk format during the install process.

This will wipe the whole disk completely and you will lose every file
on the disk.

It's not a problem doing it, just be sure it's really what you want to
do :-)

You need to change the boot sequence in BIOS then boot from your XP disk and
reformat.
