How can I reformat my Hard disk ??

My hard disks contain viruses and I wish to reformat it (I'm using Safe Mode option as of now) and I want to reformat to get back from my previous state, please tell me a step by step procedure on how to do so, plus, do I need to install Windows XP CD first or the motherboard CD (P5PE-VM- Intel ASUS)... Sorry, kinda new to this.. THANKS
