i have a small hard drive with two copies of windows 2000 pro in it and i would like to format the hole drive to wipe it clean and start over, but when i go to format it it won't let me, stating something like," cannot lock " something "must end prgram first" or something to that effect. any help to wipe this thing clean to start over would be great. Thank you

You cannot format the drive that containd Windows from within Windows (thank goodness). You need to gert a set of boot disks click here and do the format from a DOS command.

These instructions for W98 should help click here
