Question about Computers & Internet
Get a copy of the operating system on CD. Put the CD in and restart the PC and follow the instructions on screen.
If it does'nt boot from the CD Rom you have to go in to the bios and tell it to boot from CDRom first.
The way to get in to the bios depends on the PC. Usually press Delete key or F2 just as the PC starts and before it loads the operating system. If you have the book for the PC's Motherboard it will tell you in there how to change bios and save settings.
There are a lot of guides around on the net.

The easiest way is to boot from an operating system CD. Start your computer with the CD already in the drive. This will format your hard drive as part of the process. You do understand that by formatting your hard drive you are wiping it clean of your data? If you are happy with this you can just work through the installation wizard. You will need your product key/licence key in order to complete the process. You dont need to worry about partitioning the drive as operating systems these days can cope with very large hard drives with no problems. If you are planning on running Vista you will need at least a pentium 4 and more than 512mb RAM, 1GB is ideal.

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.
