Just boot up with your Linux setup disks and re-partition / format the drive. Easiest way so long as you don't want any data from within XP.

No worries, thats what we are here for!

I personally use Mandrake 9, but I know Red Hat is also a good distro so just make an informed decision by going to the websites and just pick one!
