Here's how you do it:

If you want to wipe clean say partition C or any other poartition you should get gParted. This software is great. you download Live CD for free from their site then burn it (Nero is probably the best for it) and reboot.

Next you see all partitions and choose which one to format or delete if you want. i use it all the time whenever I need it :)
