Help Reformatting

Hey guys

I have to reformat my desktop computer since its been going pretty haywire recently. I was just wondering if you could point me to a good guide as to how to do (or give me one yourselves). The ones that I have been looking up have been pretty confusing

Also, I don't have the XP CD to boot from. Is there any way around this? Can I d/l from somewhere or do I have to buy/borrow it from a friend.

Thanks in advance.

If you don't have the XP CD then how will you be installing it? Other partition?

Installing XP from a partition sucks, you can lend a copy from a friend or what not, if you own a copy and they wont give you the actual cd (cheap ****s) , you should be entitled to do what you need to do in order to get the stuff working.

Make sure you copy the files that tell XP it's a registered install.

After install you put those files back in place and XP doesn't have to reregister.
I have a page that talks about it bookmarked at home.

I haven't done it yet as I don't have a CD from a friend. I considered d/ling the iso..however I don't trust online torrents.

They're not that bad, especially if it's something that pretty much everyone needs to download at some point. There's a lot more isos out there than people who have the time to kill making malware.
