    Default ReFormat???

    Can anyone point me in the right direction if I want to completely scrub my system and start from scratch by re-installing Windows2000. Thanks in advance!

    Well you could use DBAN but perhaps a little overkill unless planning on selling the pc to someone else and you want to securely remove all data.

    I'm no expert on 2000 but I think it reformats in a similar way to XP i.e boot from the 2000 CD and follow onscreen instructions for format?

    Maybe someone else who knows 2000 better will comment.

    Yeah, it's very much the same at least during the Text Setup portion. The only real difference you'll see is during the GUI part of installation on XP when it asks you to register with MS and it asks you to setup usernames.
