    Boot your system with your WinXP CD, start setup and agree to the license by
    hitting F8. At the point where you choose the installation location, instead
    delete the existing partition that houses Vista. Then create a new one from
    the free space, do a quick format and proceed with installing XP.

    Best of Luck,

    Insert the XP CD and it will format your hard drive and install XP.
