Windows 7: Need help uninstalling Win7

Need help uninstalling Win7

I've tried Win7 for a few weeks now, it's nice, but I like XP more. So I'm gonna reformat back to XP.

Only prob is, where's the recovery console to reformat??

I installed Win7 on a fresh reformat so there is no other OS on it.

I have MEPIS Linux Live CD so if I need to create a partition to install XP on, then I will. Is this how I do it, create a partition, install XP, format C: drive from XP recovery console, then attach the C: to the E: drive where my XP will be?

Any help is nice, thanks.

Put the XP installation disc in the drive and boot from it, choose the delete partition, (Win7,) and install over it. Ensure you have first backed up all you data from Win7.
