hi, can someone tell me how to reformat my harddrive? i have windows xp professional. i know how to reformat but i need to know if i have to boot with a windows 98 bootdisk even if i have xp, or will xp professional bootdisks let me access my cd-rom? someone once told me i had to have windows 98 bootdisk with smartdrv on it or i couldn't access the cd-rom to reinstall windows. i no longer have a windows 98 bootdisk. i'm afraid to erase everything unless i know for sure that a xp pro bootdisk will work or not, which i've already downloaded from the internet. i plan on putting xp pro back on my computer. please help.
p.s. also, for those in need of a good reliable anti-virus program try panda anti-virus, that's the best one i've found so far. it's one of the best listed. anyone interested, email me and i'll send you information.
