hello everyone! i was planning to reformat my aunts ibm netvista pc (an old one).. but im not really familiar with its bios, i cant boot it from the cd-rom, me and a friend was trying to find a way, moving jumpers of the hard drive and everything, but we cant still boot from the cd..

the previous installed OS was windows 2000 workstation 4.0.. and we are planning to change it to windows XP... processors' intel celeron.. its doesnt have a cd-rom so we have to open the casing just to install a cd drive...

please give us a step by step procedure on how to reformat the pc, on how to reboot from the cd-rom, so we can install the new OS...

tnx in advance..
