I just have one more question. If you go here http://www.killdisk.com/downloads/killdisk.pdf and click on "Autoexecute Mode" It gives you some instructions but I dont get it? Can someone please explain this to me? Especially the first step!

Thanks

uuh dude why????? That is VERY DANGEOUS! If you stick it in the wrong machine by accident you will erase everything. As a end user you don't need that. That is for someone who wipes, cleans, and reinstalls software for a living.
Just make a boot floppy with the program insert it in the drive, reboot, and at the A:\ type killdisk. Then follow the instructions.

When I try to reinstall XP it says Drive Boot Sector (something like that) needs to be modify! It says press "Y" to continue or any other key to abort if I press "Y" it just aborts giving this error screen! And I dont want ANYTHING happening to this OS CD as it is not mine! So I am going to install that Puppy Linux!

RockIV I may have made a mistake advising you to conduct these tasks on your own. I made an assuming that you had some moderate computer knowledge. From the question you are asking I feel you are in over your head. I usually encourage person the do things like this but you are the exception. I feel you need to seek professional help. I have known dozens of people who had no problem understanding what I have conveyed to you. You are either are pulling my chain, which I do not appreciate, or you need to bring your computer to a shop to have these basic things done.
I am sorry if I have been vague. I am sorry if I have confused you more than when you started. I will refrain from giving you advice, because I believe it will only lead to you becoming more confused. I apologize to you and anyone else at BC if these recent replies caused more problems than they have solved.
