Just set the bios to boot from CD. Then follow the instructions.

Tis will wipe the hard drive and install a new copy of XP.

This will help. click here

Do you have all the drivers to hand? Do you have the original recovery discs?

...if you do a clean install of XP, you will have to install all programs again. This may not be of consequence as you are giving it to the kids - just understand that any software on the disk now will not be accessible after clean install.
