Answers :

You'll need to have your original manufacturer disks that came with the PC or laptop and do a system rebuild.

If you don't have those, you can try contacting Microsoft to see if you can buy the OS disk without buying the license, since the license sticker is on your PC. This usually takes some perserverence.

As a last resort, you could buy a new license of the OS of choice, perhaps upgrading to Vista or Windows 7 when it comes out. You might need to add RAM for this option.
You either need the operating systems disk sent by your manufacturer or a Windows OS disk you've purchased. Boot from the disk and follow the insrtuctions to install a fresh copy of the operating system.
