Want to run a clean install of Win2k, but the format c:/u command will not work

I want to format my hard drive and run a clean install of Windows 2000, but the format c:/u command will not work with Win2k. How do I do this? Thanks.

To completely start over, search for a tool called "delpart". This tool will delete any and all partitions on a...

hard drive. Then boot form the CD (you may need to edit your CMOS for this) to launch the install process.

If you can't boot from the CD, use another system to build the boot floppies.
