Oh I think I'm gunna cry. I just typed up a lengthy helpful response and was pleased with my work. I then closed the window forgetting to post it after the post preview page popped up. Long story short then:

To format your HDD:
1. Make a boot disk off a good computer, include FDISK and FORMAT
2. Boot new computer with boot disk, run FDISK and partition your HDD.
3. Run FORMAT C: /s and the same (without /s) for all other drives

Install Windows:
1. Reboot and enter the BIOS setup
2. Set computer to boot from CD-rom
3. Insert Windows CD into CD-rom drive
4. Reboot
