Replace XP with 2000

Question: I wouldl like to install windows 2000 server but currently windows xp exists on my computer. I can't format the C: drive to clean it off, how do I format c:

Answer: Start the install of the new operating system and reformat the drive when it offers you the opportunity to do so early in the install. Sometimes there are problems in trying to install earlier Windows versions over later ones in whch case you might create a bootable floppy and copy the format program to that so you can boot from the floppy and then format the drive. Alternatively upgrade to Windows 2003 Server instead of downgradng to 2000.
