    Welcome to the forums!

    You can delete the partitions, or install another distribution right over them.

    The PartedMagic LiveCD is a very good tool for working with partitions, and it's easy to use:

    If you should need to remove GRUB from the master boot record (MBR), you can use the SuperGRUB LiveCD for that:

    Super Grub Disk Webpage: Home Page

    It's a great utility for working with GRUB, LILO, and Windows bootloaders.

    you should just be able to pop in your windows xp cd, boot, and then delete the partitions and install windows without any problems
