If your current X\P installation is FAT32, then you can boot the computer with a win98 boot floppy and type format c: in dos.

If your current file system is NTFS. Then set the first boot in the bios to cdrom, put your X\P disk in. It will load a few things on and then give you the option to format the drive. You can use this method for FAT32 as well.

Or of course you can use FDISK or partition magic.
