    If you are doing a clean install of an OS (windows xp etc) You can format your drives during the install.

    Pop your windows CD into the CD drive and restart the PC.

    Go into you BIOS and make sure the boot sequence has floop and CDROM before the HDD.

    Once setup starts on your CD you will have menus and options to partition and format your HDDs.

    If you want to format HDDs without installing an OS, open 'My Computer', your HDDs will be listed. Right click the HDD you want to format and select format.
