Need to wipe my HP G61 but how?

Basically, I've got a HP G61 that had windows 7 installed, however, a few weeks ago it crashed and wouldn't recover. Since then I've used Ubuntu. Now I've obtained a copy of 7 that I'd like to install however I need to format the hard drive to NTFS but I dont know how. Any ideas? Thanks

hi

brinks excellent tutorial will help you How to Do a Clean Installation with Windows 7 >>> Clean Install Windows 7


Quote:
Do a Clean Installation if:
Your computer has no operating system installed, or it’s running a version of Windows prior to Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (including Windows XP).
You do NOT want to preserve your data, programs, or system drivers.
You want to delete your current operating system and replace it with Windows 7.
You want to create a multiboot system by installing Windows 7 on a separate hard disk partition.
