    Boot from the XP CDROM disc, delete the WindowsMe partition, create a new
    one using NTFS. Doesn't get any cleaner than that. :-)

    Good idea to back up all his files first, or they'll be gone forever!

    boot your system from the XP install cd, and during the install process
    you'll be given the option to format and re-partition the harddrive.
