You will have to go into your BIOS nad set it to boot from the CD. To get to the bios you will need to hit the DEL key or one o the F keys.
Then you just follow the on screen directions. You might want to back up everything on your computer first. You will not be able to go back to Vista if you wipe the drive. As long as you have the recovery CD that came with the system you will be okay if you want to go back to Vista later. You can get this from the Computer company that is on the computer. There is usually a way to make a recovery CD. You will have to follow the steps of your system to make this.
