    To do a clean install, either boot the Windows 2000 install CD-Rom or setup
    disks. The set of four install disks can be created from your Windows 2000
    CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom and execute
    makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow the
    prompts.

    When you get to the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions
    found. After you delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again
    restart the pc booting the CD-Rom or setup disks to avoid unexpected drive
    letter assignments with your new install.
