It's not that bad as long as you do some preparation work.
1. Make sure you have your software and product/license numbers in your hands before you begin. That includes your operating system, word processing products, and any other software/product numbers that you may have purchased along the way.
2. Make sure you have your driver disks for any adapters, or on board system board devices.
3. Back-up the important stuff! Remember to save your documents/music/pictures etc...
If you have a named brand product, like Dell or HP, you probably have system restore disks. Place these in your CD drive, and let the computer boot to them. They will place the basic foundation on your system. They should also ask for an operating system disk like Windows 98/ME/XP.
Good luck. I hope this helps. If you have any questions, just ask.
