  1. I usually set the BIOS to boot up from the CD, then windows will install. Sometimes it gave me a hard time, because there was already an operating system on there, so I been using FDISK ever since. I can’t recall if it formatted that way. Anyway you can download a bootdisk <A HREF="http://www.mirrors.org/archived_software/www.bootdisk.com/original.htm" target="_new">Here</A> or make your own <A HREF="http://www.compguystechweb.com/troubleshooting/fdisk/bootdisk.html" target="_new">Here</A>

  2. Yeah, just boot off the floppy into real DOS mode and run the good old format command to wipe the drive.
