Ok, just a couple more questions and I may get this thing done.
Is it possible to just remove the hard drive, reformat it in another computer then install Windows 2000 on the hard drive once I return it to the original computer?
The problem that I was having was that I was attempting to run the nuke program however you have to be in dos only inorder to do it. XP will not allow me to be in Dos alone. It does not allow you to go to the command prompt without Windows starting up. I found some articles (not sure how accurate they are) stating that it is impossible to start Dos alone using Windows XP. With XP you can not run Dos alone because unlike 95 and 98 it is not built the same.
Anyway maybe the other program you suggested,the Digital Dolly, would solve this problem too rather than using nuke.
Thanks for all your help thus far. Seems like the more problems I run into the more I learn so I'm not really stressing about it at this point.
