If you have an external (USB) CD/DVD reader, boot the Dell restore CD (if you have it) and follow the instructions. If you have a legal Windows XP install CD, boot it, select Custom or Advanced (I forget whet it is called), delete all existing partitions and install to the unpartitioned space.

If you don't have an external reader you can use various tools to create a bootable USB flash drive from a CD.
