Boot from your Mac OS X CD... choose Disk Utility from the menu when the installer starts... Format disk from the Erase... (NOTE: this will delete EVERYTHING on that disk, for ever...) quit Disk Utility and continue to install new OS... enjoy... ;)

if you are planning on installing OS X for the first time on this mac be sure to update your firmware before hand!!
