I am adding a HD that my kid had in her computer. She had 4 partitions and I want only one or two. How do I take the HD back to the beginning so I can start over.

I'm assuming two things here, correct me if I'm wrong, you're adding another hard drive to your system and you're currently running Windows XP.
If both of the above are true, go to Start > Run > enter in: diskmgmt.msc
This will show you the partitions in your system grouped by the hard drives they're on. They can be added, deleted, and formatted from there.

OK, now that I'm in disk management. I see 2 primary partitions, and an extended partition that is divided into 2 logical drives. How do I get this whole mess back to just the drive with no partitions?
