    It's not that hard really.

    You want to backup stuff like: My Documents,Stuff in C:&#092;Documents and Settings&#092; <your user name>, etc.

    I suggest u get Partion Magic.. make a backup partion if u got a big hd.
    Spend atleast 1 hour or so thinkin of what u need to backup. When your finally ready, partion magic has a format feature.. format your c drive.. it&#39;ll do it in DOS on reboot, then put the xp disk in and let it boot up to install.. (you should probably get the XP Pro Bootdisks if u downloaded xp off kazaa or something: http://www.bootdisk.com/.. after u start the installation.. you choose wat u want from there.

    Thanks

    I&#39;m new with this... because i don&#39;t want to pay to someone for doing this&#33; and they ask for good money for doing this little thing (reinstalling windows and formatting)

    I use windows ME , because my pc is:

    500mhz
    256 MB RAM
    20GB



    Should i still try Partion Magic┐

    yea, Partion Magic allows u to make partions, format, etc on a hardrive.
    A partion will make 2 virtual hds on your disk.. it&#39;ll add a space that will act as a diff hd.. allowing backup of your files while u can format your windows os partion.
