Installation of XP; is erase parition as format or wipe?

Hello Everybody,

When you insert XP and it goes to the blue screen to start the setup process, it asks you what partition that you'd like to setup Windows on;) ;)

And there is also the option to "Delete Partition":rolleyes: :pt1cable:

If you "Delete Partition", does this permanently erase the data from your hd as a wipe or killdisk; or is it the same as a format instead?:eek: :o

    It does not make ANY sense......
