Go to "Add/Remove Programs" and may a system disk. Boot your computer with the floppy the drive, making sure your computer is set to boot from the floppy before th hard drive. At the A:\ type format c: /u. Make sure the spaces are there. When the warning pops up answer YES.
once you are formatted you can install your OS.
If you want to make changes to the partition now is the time to do it. I would recommend splitting the partition if you have the room.
