I asked before about how to format a HD that has Xp installed and I was
explained that you use the bootable Cd that Xp comes in. So what would the
Xp rescue disk be good for?

Is this a Dell machine?

Why are you going to format the HDD?

I already solved the problem I had, I was just curious as to why if there
are now bootable Cd's, the Win Xp installation program offers you to set up
a rescue disk as it did Win95 and 98

Most manufacturers supplied rescue disks should be able to partition and
format a hard disk. Have you tried booting the the first cd rescue disk to
see what your options are?
