    its not very tough to do, but there are different options depending. do you want to format your system drive? and are you planning on installing windows on to it? If so, after backing up your personal files, just restart your computer, and insert your windows installation disk. Make sure your computer boots to the disk. (You'll see a blue screen while windows setup is loading, takes a few minutes to load all the drivers.) Select the option to do a clean install. You also have the option to delete your HD partition, which will then reformat your HD and procede to install windows.
